Speaker (via Skype): Filmmaker Suzan Beraza
Reception at 1:45pm open to ticket holders for both Bag It! and On Coal River
This highly entertaining and eye-opening film follows everyman Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic-reliant world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics.

ON COAL RIVER
Speakers (via Skype): Filmmakers Francine Cavanaugh & Adams Wood
A compelling and transcendent narrative on the human costs of coal and strip-mining, this provocative film follows the journey of a former coal miner and his neighbors. Unfolding as a modern-day David vs. Goliath tale, the residents of the Coal River Valley in West Virginia transform from so-called victims to fearless and informed experts on mountaintop removal.
Thursday, April 28 at 7:30pm
Speaker(via Skype): Filmmaker Mark MacInnis
Filmmakers Mark MacInnis, Leila Conners (writer/director of “The 11th Hour”) and Mathew Schmid tell the powerful story of a group of dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally grown, sustainably farmed food in a deserted, collapsed city cut off from real food and limited to processed fast food. These urban farmers have taken on the enormous task of taking charge of their future and shaping a new world.
