Sierra Club screening "Fresh"

Screening of Fresh

Wednesday, October 13, 7-9 p.m.
Chapel Hill Public Library (100 Library Dr.; directions)

We've learned a lot about what's wrong with the American food system--fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides made out of fossil fuels, polluted water, poisoned produce, and don't even mention processed foods loaded with fat and sugar. Fresh is an up-beat look at how we can grow and distribute food that's better for human heath and the health of the planet. NYU nutrition professor Marion Nestle says "It's a must see for everyone who eats." Please join us for a screening and discussion. (Official movie website.)

CANCELLED! Movie: 'Who Killed the Electric Car' at the Trains


Today the President announced loans for bailing out the automotive industry. While it is important to save jobs, fuel efficiency improvements and safeguards for consumers and the environment have not been a part of any of the failed legislation considered by Congress up until now, and much less by the administration in today's announcement.  With this bail-out our government is demonstrating once again, as with the financial bail-out, a catastrophic shortsightedness.  We are missing a great opportunity for retrofitting our highly carbon intensive infrastructure.  We could be dealing with global warming and peak oil while at the same time priming the real economy.

CANCELLED: the Carrborogreenspace (The WITT in exile) will be presenting 'Who Killed the Electric Car" at the Station at Southern Rail (201-c East Main Street), Carrboro.  The auto-industry has actively continued to ignore all the signs that would have lead to a saner predicament then the one that they find themselves in today.  This movie demonstrates the complicity that we are inheriting as our govenment throws money away to an industry that could be made to do better....  come out, inform yourself, and hold your Representative accountable to the highest standards.  Discussion to follow after the movie.

Hi Mom! Film Festival

Hi Mom! is a free-to-enter, cheap-to-attend volunteer run festival of short films, now in year number 10. We see it as an important and fun contribution to the local vibrant culture. Our outdoor show is co-sponsored by the Town of Chapel Hill, an attempt by them to help utilize the parking deck plaza for events. It may be noted that we are one of the few groups to ever use the space - we've put on an outdoor show there for 5 years now and usually have had crowds of 200 - 350. This is the first year the town has "co-sponsored" that show, they are giving us chairs to use so we don't have to rent them, and I think waiving the fee we normally pay ($75 I think).

New documentary about WCOM

Elon University students created a 15-minute documentary film about WCOM and Low Power FM stations called "103.5: A Radio Community."

The film has also been submitted into the Carrboro Film Festival, but you can watch it right here...

"Gashole" screenings

A friend of mine saw this film and recommended it. It's a documentary about "the history of Oil prices and the future of alternative fuels." Apparently the screening will benefit Chapel Hill's Clean Cities Coalition (not sure who/what that is). From

In lieu of traditional distribution, and due to the important nature of the topic, the Producers have opted to pursue a unique model in which the filmmakers will personally attend the premiere of "GasHole" in dozens of cities. Each screening will be followed by Question and Answers with the filmmakers and some cities will include a local panel of experts.

It is very important to the entire GASHOLE TEAM that this project generate as much good will and practical solutions as possible. In many cities the premiere of the movie will be included in a Benefit Fund Raising Event to raise money for local worthy causes, such as Historical Theater Renovation, Youth Scholarships and local chapters of The Clean Cities Coalition. Each Benefit Event will be unique to that city and organization, but each will include a screening of the Documentary "GasHole" followed by a reception with the filmmakers Jeremy Wagener and Scott D. Roberts.

Time: 2 Screenings and Q & A's, 3:00pm and 5:30pm
