Flyers are available here: 11×17 or 8-1/2×11 MORE THAN HONEY (95 min, Markus Imhoof, 2012) is a film on the relationship between mankind and honeybees, about nature and about our future. Honeybees show us that stability is just as unhealthy as unlimited growth; that crises and disasters are triggering evolution; and that solutions sometime come from a completely unexpected directions. Honey bees appeared on Earth 60 million years before humankind, are responsible for over 80% of plant species being pollinated, and are indispensable to our survival.  And along with other pollinating animals – birds, butterflies, bats, beetles and more – are vital to our delicate ecosystem. But over the past 15 years, due to “Colony Collapse Disorder”, colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world.  Should we blame pesticides or even the medications used to combat them? Parasites? Viruses? Traveling stress? Or a combination of all? View the trailer here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh_IRrBeu-0 The Puget Sound Beekeepers Association will also be joining us for the discussion and to answer questions.  They will set up an observation hive for display at 6:30, and will have honey tasting and honey/honey products there for sale.

Toxic Sludge Is Good for You: The Public Relations Industry Unspun (45 min, Loretta Alper & Sut Jhally, 2002) While advertising is the visible component of the corporate system, perhaps even more important and pervasive is its invisible partner, the public relations industry. This video illuminates this hidden sphere of our culture and examines the way in which the management of “the public mind” has become central to how our democracy is controlled by political and economic elites. TOXIC SLUDGE IS GOOD FOR YOU illustrates how much of what we think of as independent, unbiased news and information has its origins in the boardrooms of the public relations companies. Please join us following the film for a facilitated discussion. (Event is FREE and open to the public! …but Donations are kindly accepted).

With: GOT GREEN & THE SIERRA CLUB The economy does not have to be the way it is right now. If you didn’t believe we were in trouble before the financial tornado hit in 2008, you probably do now, regardless of your political leanings. One response is to put a new coat of paint on the old economy, maybe even fumigate it. But who is trying something fresh, experimenting with ways the economy can better serve more people and be less prone to getting destructively out of whack? FIXING THE FUTURE Interviews leading economists, David Korten and Jane D’Arista, as well as the US Editor of The Economist, Matthew Bishop, to find out how to go about fixing capitalism, rebuilding our economy and creating jobs.

The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself.
