PREMIERE FREE FILM SCREENING — A Place at the Table

Location: Virtual

Register at: https://placeatthetable_2021.eventbrite.com

Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

This film will be accessible to watch for 72 hours, from April 27th to April 29th.

The Upper Valley Climate Change & Sustainability Film Series is made possible by the generous support from underwriters, Mascoma Bank and Vermont Community Foundation, and sponsors: Mark D. Knott DDS, The Ellaway Group and Unicorn.

Free admission. (Recommended donation of $10.) Donations go to support Pentangle Arts.

An Evening with Frances Moore Lappe

Location: Zoom

Register at: https://francesmoorelappe.eventbrite.com

Celebrate Earth Day with renowned activist and author Frances Moore Lappé as she presents: Climate Crisis In Focus: Finding Hope Through Democratic Action.

Frances Moore Lappé is the author or co-author of 20 books about world hunger, living democracy, and the environment, beginning with the three-million copy Diet for a Small Planet (1971). In Spring 2021, Lappé released It’s Not Too Late! Crisis, Opportunity, and the Power of Hope.

In America today, many of us can feel overwhelmed by the simultaneous political, economic, and climate crises upon us. Frances Moore Lappé discusses these three interacting roots of our problems: a brutal form of capitalism, big money’s grip on our democracy, and climate catastrophe. She shows us how realizing their unity can be empowering, not overwhelming. They open historic opportunity. Addressing one crisis, we are working to solve all three. Through inspiring stories and startling facts, Frances helps us realize our own power to generate a new story as we tackle these root causes with exhilarating, courageous action—together.

This event will be entirely virtual and hosted over Zoom. Frances Moore Lappé’s presentation–5:00-5:45pm; Live Q&A with the Author–5:45-6:15; Concluding Remarks–6:15-6:30.

Hosted by Sustainable Woodstock and Pentangle Arts, with support from Vermont Humanities. Free and open to all with a suggested donation of $10. All donations will benefit Pentangle Arts and Sustainable Woodstock. Donations can be made through Pentangle Arts at: ci.ovationtix.com/35996/store/donations/41238

GREEN DRINKS — Housing in the Upper Valley

May 20th, 5:30 PM


Film Screening–Homesick and Lowland Kids short film screenings

May 25th

Register at: homesick_lowlandkids.eventbrite.com

May 25, 6:00 AM-11:30 PM: Short films are open to watch

May 25, 7:00 PM: Live Q&A with producer of Lowland Kids

As part of this month’s Climate Change and Sustainability Film Series, Sustainable Woodstock will screen two short films featuring stories of humans displacement. The first film, Homesick, is the fictional story of a father willing to enter the Fukushima disaster no-go-zone to spend time with his eight year old son. Directed by Koya Kamura, who is a half French half Japanese, the film is in Japanese with English subtitles.

The second short film, Lowland Kids, is a documentary that tells the story of the last teenagers on the Isle de Jean Charles, a sinking island off the coast of Louisiana. For the two siblings, this place has always been home. After losing their parents, their uncle has raised them on this island, passing on his love and appreciation for the land. But the island is running out of time. Due to rising sea levels and hurricanes, the Brunet family finds themselves forced to leave Isle de Jean Charles, and saying goodbye is not easy. The future can’t possibly be brighter than the life they have here. Or could it?

Join us for a live Q&A with a creator of Lowland Kids at 7:00 PM, May 25th!

This screening is only available to those watching from the USA.
