Charles Light and Daniel Keller, co-founders of Green Mountain
Post Films, have collaborated on a large number of movies that
explore social issues. They are presently working with noted journalist
and screenwriter Jesse Kornbluth on a feature film based on FAMOUS LONG AGO, Ray Mungo's countercultural
classic from the sixties, as well as a documentary about that
turbulent era called NO SUCCESS LIKE FAILURE.
Their 1975 documentary release, LOVEJOY'S NUCLEAR WAR, was one of the first films to question the nuclear energy policy of the United States. It was awarded the John Grierson Prize, given to the most promising new director of social issue documentaries by the Educational Film Librarians Association at the 1976 American Film Festival. The film went on to win numerous international awards, including a Silver Hugo at the Chicago Film Festival, Best Political Film at the San Francisco Film Festival, a feature screening at the Berlin Film Festival and has been shown extensively both in the US. and abroad.
THE LAST RESORT chronicles the fight over the controversial nuclear power plant at Seabrook, New Hampshire. This 1978 release was voted the Best Political Film at the San Francisco Festival and was screened at Ann Arbor, Nyon, Rotterdam and other film festivals.
SAVE THE PLANET, an eighteen minute montage history of the atomic age, was produced in 1979 for the Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) Concerts. The 35mm film was shown on a sixty foot screen over five nights at Madison Square Garden.
THE SECRET AGENT, a 1983 co-production
with Jacki Ochs, premiered at the New York Film Festival, received
the Grierson Prize and many other festival accolades, as well
as international television exposure. The film, called "one
of the year's most terrifying horror films" by the Boston
Globe, remains the most comprehensive cinematic investigation
of dioxin, Agent Orange and the Vietnam veterans.
UNKNOWN SECRETS: Art & the Rosenberg Era (1990) examines the reaction of artists and writers to the arrest, trial, and execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Narrated by John Randolph, and featuring the voices of Ed Asner, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Tovah Feldshuh, Jack Gilford, and Tony Randall, the 30 minute production was called "a stunning mood piece that underscores the wave of anti-Communist hysteria...an original and refreshing approach to an important historical era" by Video Rating Guide for Libraries in their 4 star review.
