Juice: Power, Politics, and the Grid
One night only, Thu 2/15 6:30-8:30p
Author and film producer Robert Bryce, a native of Tulsa, will be screening two episodes of his new docuseries Juice: Power, Politics, & The Grid at the Circle on February 15. The new docuseries, directed by Tyson Culver, takes viewers from Texas to Tokyo to show how politicians and corporate avarice have weakened our electric grid and why we need fission to fix it. While offering a sober assessment of the challenges facing the $5 trillion-per-year global electricity sector, the series concludes with a hopeful look at the future — and the future of climate change — by featuring activists who are fueling renewed interest and investment in nuclear power in the U.S., Canada, and around the world. The series features exclusive coverage of the Osage tribe’s long-running battle with Enel over a 150-megawatt wind project the company built without the tribe’s consent. In a landmark ruling, on December 20, 2023, a federal judge in Tulsa ordered Enel to remove 84 wind turbines it built in Osage County. Bryce and Culver will be at the Circle to show two episodes (total run time of about 40 minutes) from the series. They will be available for Q&A after the screening.
