The 2013 NSA spying scandal exposed vast programs to monitor your personal communications.  Now, energy utilities and governments are reaching into your own home, through fast-tracked “smart” meters and data-harvesting technology.  But, what if you have a choice?  At stake is in-home surveillance, increased bills, emerging health risks and more hacking vulnerabilities.  With compelling insight from whistleblowers, researchers, government agents, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, Josh del Sol’s award-winning documentary Take Back Your Power brings us on a journey — investigating the erosion of rights in the name
of “smart” and “green,” while navigating toward inspiring solutions.  What you’ll discover will surprise, unsettle and ultimately empower you.

May 22nd, Sustainable Living Film Series Screening of “Speciesism:The Movie”

Modern animal farms are struggling to keep a secret. Most of the animals used for food in the U.S. are raised in factories hidden deep in remote areas of the countryside. Speciesism: The Movie Director Mark Devries set out to investigate. The documentary takes viewers on a sometimes funny, sometimes frightening adventure, crawling through the bushes that hide these factories, flying in airplanes above their toxic “manure lagoons,” and coming face-to-face with their owners.

As it’s title suggests, the film questions whether an animal’s life holds more value than a human life, and asks: just because we can control other beings, should we? Speciesism: The Movie brings viewers face-to-face with the leaders of this developing movement, and, for the first time ever on film, fully examines the purpose of what they are setting out to do. Interviews from scholarly figures like Richard Dawkins, Sherry Colb, and Gary Francione take Devries’ arguments home, and add to the film’s credibility.
