In celebration of Earth Day 2019, Cincinnati filmmaker Laure Quinlivan’s half-hour documentary BLUE GOES GREEN will be shown on PBS stations in a number of top 50 cities across the U.S. – including Los Angeles, Denver, Albuquerque/Santa Fe, Charlotte, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, and Louisville.
The documentary looks at how Cincinnati, Ohio built the first Net Zero Energy police station in America. It also shows how this “green” construction project improved police-community relations and saved taxpayer money.
“I’m grateful this story of community engagement and sustainability success now has a chance to inspire others around the country to build green and save funds,” says Quinlivan, a former Cincinnati Council Member and Peabody Award-winning investigative TV reporter in Cincinnati. “If we can do it here in Cincinnati, any city can do it!”
“This film is an eye-opening primer for local governments,” says Jim Weiner, Program Director for WCET in Cincinnati. “Going Green can save them operating expenses in year one.”
Ohio viewers will be able to see the film on Cincinnati’s WCET – April 21st at 5 pm – and on Dayton’s Think TV, Channel 12 – Wednesday April 17th @ 11 pm and Sunday April 21st @ 5 pm. Cincinnati viewers can also see the program on KET, Kentucky’s statewide public tv network,
on Friday April 12 @ 10:30 pm.
Other PBS stations airing BLUE GOES GREEN include KVCR in Los Angeles; Colorado Public Television in Denver, KENW in Albuquerque/Santa Fe, WGVU in Grand Rapids, and WIPB in Indianapolis. BLUE GOES GREEN will also air statewide throughout Kentucky, Idaho and South Carolina.
