Orion Joins BIFF, WGBY at NOW Screening

On October 5, executive editor Hal Clifford joined David Brancaccio, editor and lead correspondent for the PBS investigative reporting television show NOW, at the Triplex Theater in Great Barrington. The event was a screening of the NOW segment “On Thin Ice,” in which David and mountaineer Conrad Anker traveled to Montana and India to explore the implications of vanishing glaciers. The screening was cosponsored by the Berkshire International Film Festival and our local PBS affiliate, WGBY. After the show, David and Hal fielded questions about activism, the role of government, media literacy and more from a nearly full house afterward that probably could have gone all night if the moderator had let them.
