The Magistical takes place in a world of dragons and mystics, where a boy must find the courage to save those he loves. John Cernak, founder of Out of Our Minds, says he wanted to create an animated movie modeled after Disney films from the 1940s and 50s. “We wanted to make an original fairy tale that would be as relevant 50 years from now as it is today,’ he comments. “When you consider that Snow White is 70 this year, it is obvious that these movies fill a void for a type of children’s film that is rarely seen. We don’t want to play it safe with quick laughs and pop culture references that will be lost in 10 years.”

Zombies: When the Dead Walk – 11/13/09 – Canzani Center at the Columbus College of Art & Design – Columbus, OH

Zombies: When the Dead Walk

a film by Donna Zuckerbrot, produced by Reel Time Images

Ohio Premier

Friday, November 13, 2009
8:00pm
Canzani Center at the Columbus College of Art & Design

YouTube Preview Image

Zombies are part of pop culture, but what are they? Where do they come from? How can we ever be free of the curse of the living dead? To find real zombies we will have to go quite a ways from Hollywood and its pop culture offshoots. In Haiti Zombies are an integral part of the island’s cultural and religious roots. Outlawed by the government, zombification is said to be performed secretly in the countryside. It’s meant as a punishment for crimes against the community. The culprit is magically killed, resurrected and enslaved. We take a look at the practice of Voodoo, examine advances in psychopharmacology, and zombies in popular culture. It’s a surreal mix of religion, science and fun ‘When the Dead Walk’.

Admission is $5, free with student id. Dress like a zombie and get in free. Prizes for best zombie costumes.

A Political Thriller on genetic engineering and freedom of speech

YouTube Preview Image

Árpád Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela have two things in common. They are distinguished scientists and their careers are in ruins. Both scientists choose to look at the phenomenon of genetic engineering. Both made important discoveries. Both of them are suffering the fate of those who criticise the powerful vested interests that now dominate big business and scientific research.

Statements made by scientists themselves prove that 95% of the research in the area of genetic engineering is paid by the industry. Only 5% of the research is

independent. The big danger for freedom of science and our democracy is evident. Can the public – we all – still trust our scientists?

This is a documentary thriller about how Agro-Chemical multinational corporations victimize international scientists to prevent them from publishing their scary findings.

Admission is free, donations accepted. Beer and brats will be available at the bar.

Doors open at 7 pm.

2254 E Main St

Columbus, OH 43209-2319

Filmed over a twelve-month period, from Rochester, NY and Cleveland, to Seattle, Los Angeles and San Diego, WE ALL FALL DOWN also shows how an out-of-control “mortgage machine” has today led to home foreclosures nationwide, featuring interviews with families who have been devastated, as loan defaults and evictions spread from the poor to middle-class sectors of the populace, in turn creating millions of abandoned and disintegrating properties in neighborhoods and cities throughout the U.S. Their emotionally moving stories reveal the all-too-real personal consequences for Americans caught up in this financial spiral.

This screening is co-sponsored by the Free Press.

Strong Coffee: The Story of Café Femenino – 10/20/09 – Studio 35 – Columbus, OH

Strong Coffee

YouTube Preview Image

Film’s Website: http://www.strongcoffeefilm.com/

STRONG COFFEE tells the story of Café Femenino—a revolutionary idea that is helping people in need all over the world. Café Femenino beans are the first coffee beans grown entirely by women farmers.

Remarkably, the Café Femenino project is helping to change long-established attitudes and weaken the grip of machismo in remote farming communities. In response, a cultural shift is taking place. There is more equality between women and men, abuse and violence towards women are decreasing, and the quality of life in these regions is improving.

To better understand this phenomenon, a small group of coffee roasters travel to Northern Peru to meet some of the impoverished women farmers who grow this high quality, certified organic, fair trade coffee. The film follows the roasters as they travel to remote villages to see how coffee beans are grown, picked, processed, and sold. We learn about the Peruvian women’s struggles, their courage and incredible achievements, and meet some of the remarkable people involved in the formation of the Café Femenino project.

STRONG COFFEE also shows how Café Femenino helps women in our own communities. The documentary takes a peek at the billion dollar coffee industry from the perspective of Café Femenino and provides an interesting look at the power of the consumer dollar. STRONG COFFEE: The Story of Café Femenino is an uplifting, motivating, and inspiring film.

Admission is just $5.

This film screening has been co-sponsored by Stauf’s.
