Portland State's Millar Library's Artists and Writers Series will
partner with Livable Places, an environmental nonprofit organization, to screen the High Plains Films' documentary, Libby, Montana. The film will be shown as part of the Portland International Nature & Environmental Film Festival (PINE), at Portland State's Fifth Avenue Cinema.

Libby, Montana is the story of a town where hundreds of people are sick or have already died from asbestos exposure and the company responsible for the toxic mess leaves town and declares bankruptcy. A small group of citizens comes together to fight for their town and find themselves at odds with local politicians and an international corporation. Libby, Montana is a journey into the world of a hard-working, blue-collar community that exemplifies the American Dream gone horribly wrong.
