BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — Award-winning filmmakers Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin will present their new documentary, “Plane Truths: Will Our Communities Become Collateral Damage” at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 10 at the Eagle Harbor Congregational Church, 105 Winslow Way W., Bainbridge Island.

The film examines community impacts of Navy expansion in the Puget Sound Region. It is particularly timely given the March 23 deadline for public comment on the Navy’s plan to expand its special operations training of Navy SEALS along 265 miles of public and private shoreline in the western Puget Sound, including sites at Blake Island, Manchester, Port Orchard, Liberty Bay, Oyster Bay, Tracyton, Scenic Beach State Park, Illahee, Seabeck Elementary School, Eagle Harbor, Fletcher Bay, Manzanita, and Port Madison.

Following the film, Karen Sullivan of West Coast Action Alliance will address public safety and privacy concerns raised by the Navy’s plans and will explain the environmental assessment currently being conducted and the citizen opportunity to participate in the process.
