“Momenta is about you, me, everyone who lives here, loves it and cares about what happens to our planet,” says Eric Wallis, the Portland-based producer of Momenta. “We set out making this film to demonstrate the overwhelming unpopularity of coal export and crossroads of the American West: old innovation vs. new. We want it to be a step towards winning the campaign against coal export.”
