THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN

SHOWN AT 7:15PM
“The Real Dirt On Farmer John” will turn every idea you ever had about what it means to be an American farmer – or an American dreamer – on its head. Meet Farmer John, the incredible human being whose inspirational story of revolutionizing his family farm and redeeming his own life has won accolades and awards at film festivals around the world. Director Taggart Siegel of Collective Eye made the film in a most unusual way – shooting farmer John Peterson over 25 years of their evolving friendship, and using multiple media, from 8 mm home movies to modern video – allowing him to capture his alternately humorous, heartbreaking and spirited life with raw drama and intimacy.

Part of our

series of sustainability films.

“What a blessing this film is, for everyone who’s chosen the road less taken, and even perhaps for anyone who’s stood in their way.” -Jan Stuart, Newsday

SHOWN FOLLOWING THE SHORT:

THE STORY OF STUFF

From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. “The Story Of Stuff” is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. “The Story Of Stuff” exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.

SIR! NO SIR!

SHOWN AT 7:15

David Zeiger’s documentary energetically reveals the untold story of the GI movement to end the war in Vietnam. This is the story of one of the most vibrant and widespread upheavals of the 1960’s – one that had a profound impact on American society, yet has been virtually obliterated from the collective memory of that time. This hidden history combines fast-paced archival footage with thoughtful interviews, which Variety calls “perfectly timed with new doubts about the Iraq war.”

Holy Cross professor Jerry Lembcke, who is featured in the film,
will be on hand for a Q&A after the film.

“As it is, this one is compelling enough, a potent mix of outrage, residual anger, and sorrow that speaks not just to the legacy of our misadventures in Vietnam, but to the entire uncertain future of a nation at war.” -Bill Gallo, The Village Voice
