Danger Overhead Powerlines is a multi-award winning short documentary directed by Mia Mullarkey. In this modern day story of David and Goliath we follow Teresa Treacy as she battles against Ireland's largest international semi-state corporation, the Electricity Supply Board, to protect the thousands of trees she planted by hand.
