"A superbly balanced piece which laid bare what seems to be irreconcilable and polar positions, tearing friends and families apart and gnawing at the heart of a rural community."
Alan Esslemont, BBC Alba

More about the film
Windfall Island - Documentary Trailer from Earthmovies on Vimeo.
Windfall Island is an award-winning documentary about a controversial windfarm to be built on Shetland. While it is supposed to be the most productive windfarm in the world, some local residents fight fiercely against the project.
Shetland is the windiest place in the UK and therefore a real asset for the Scottish Government to reach its ambitious climate change targets. But as the issue has largely divided the local community, the opposition group Sustainable Shetland challenged the project with a judicial review.
Is the project really environmentally sound and what are the impacts on the local community?
