Based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., Living Downstream is an eloquent and cinematic feature-length documentary.

DIRT! The Movie – 07/27/10 – Drexel Theater – Columbus, OH

Event
DIRT! The Movie
When
Tuesday, July 27, 2010
7:30pm - All Ages
Where
2254 E Main St
Columbus, OH, USA 43209-2319
Other Info

DIRT! The Movie--directed and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow--takes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth's most valuable and under appreciated source of fertility--from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation.
The opening scenes of the film dive into the wonderment of the soil. Made from the same elements as the stars, plants and animals, and us, "dirt is very much alive." In modern industrial pursuits and clamor for both profit and natural resources, our human connection to and respect for soil has been disrupted.
DIRT! the Movie--narrated by Jaime Lee Curtis--brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil. The real change lies in our notion of what dirt is. When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked.
But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT the Movie is a call to action. The only remedy for disconnecting people from the natural world is connecting them to it again. What we've destroyed, we can heal.
This event is sponsored by the Central Ohio Sierra Club, Simply Living, the Columbus International Film and Video Festival and the Free Press. The movie is free and open to the public.

Under Great White Northern Lights is a visual and emotional feature length film documenting The White Stripes making their way through Canada and culminating with their 10th Anniversary show in Nova Scotia. The film documents the band playing shows all over Canada; from local bowling alleys, to city buses, and onward to the historic Savoy Theatre for the 10th Anniversary show. A show that turned out to be the longest show the band had ever done on stage together.
The film captures intimate moments of Jack and Meg both on and off stage as they travel through some of the most remote parts of the northern Yukon Territory. Along the way, they have some nice casual conversations about their ten years together, fire cannons, play some of their biggest songs together on stage, and even play a “one note show.” The cameras were there to capture every waking moment.

The DVD will be raffled off as a fundraiser after the screening. Folks can enter three ways.
*Join the FB group of the CIF+VF and RSVP to the event.
*Donate $2 to the CIF+VF at the screening.
*Order a Dollar Double Feature (sandwich/salad and drink) from the MoJoe Lounge. For every Dollar Double Feature ordered, MoJoe Lounge will donate a dollar to the CIF+VF.

The New Metropolis – 02/23/10 – Drexel Theater – Columbus, OH

The New Metropolis
When
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
7:30pm - All Ages
Where
2254 E Main St
Columbus, OH, USA 43209-2319
Other Info


America’s “first” suburbs, those suburban communities built next to America’s urban centers, were once the birthplace of the American Dream. What are they now?

Ohio’s First Suburbs are highlighted in “The New Metropolis," a groundbreaking two-part documentary on the rise, fall and revitalization of America’s first suburbs. Produced by award-winning filmmaker Andrea Torrice, this is the first public examination devoted to the issues facing many suburban towns. Considered embodiments of the American dream, the first suburbs blossomed after World War II, bolstered by economic prosperity and government support. Now, many struggle with the same challenges as urban centers -- growing poverty, white flight, crumbling infrastructure, abandonment and the continual lure of newer communities further from the cities.

Admission is FREE, donations accepted.
