Port Arthur, TX is a long way from Colorado. But when Texas environmental justice advocate Hilton Kelley delivered a message to the Mountain Film Festival in Telluride, he demonstrated an activist power that transcends that distance. Kelley, who fights for the rights of poor populations whose health is negatively impacted by oil refinery pollution, spoke on the importance of protecting the rights of all to enjoy clean air, water and soil.
A favorite from last year's Mountain Film in Telluride was honored with the first-ever Indomitable Spirit Award. Music by Prudence star Prudence Mabhena received a cash prize of $1,000, plus an additional $1,800 collected among festival attendees. Also an anonymous donor committed to make up the difference in the effort to raise $25,000 to build Mabhena a new home in Zimbabwe.
