Program 40 - #WUFF2016 @ The IBEW Local 3 Auditorium in Fresh Meadows, Queens, NY

Storm Soldiers (2015, 77 Min) - This story is about how electrical utility linemen's dangerous and challenging work impacts their personal lives, their families, and their sense of community. Linemen often arrive at disaster scenes before first responder and emergency workers. With that responsibility comes a unique sense of brotherhood. Linemen rely on one another to protect each others' safety and lives. Storm Soldiers II shows how this sense of brotherhood and community extends beyond the linemen to include their wives and children. With a dynamic look at the struggles and triumphs of bringing electricity to communities, Storm Soldiers II follows these brave men and women from storm sites to their homes.
