Through personal stories, expert interviews and investigation of state case files, “Triple Divide” tells a cautionary tale about a public agency meant to protect the public and environment that is instead protecting industry. The screening, which is free and open to ...

While here, she became involved in FSU’s Frostburg Grows Project because it reminded her of projects she’d been involved with in Taiwan at her home institution. This film shows the similarities, demonstrating the ...
