Paul suggested this one. What do you think?

Here is another possibility- "Bidder 70" tells the story of Tim DeChristopher's extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience drawing attention to the need for action on climate change.

I remember hearing someone at a Permaculture convergence a few years ago tell me that the book "World War Z" was a great read, and also a great metaphor for dealing with the triple threat of peak oil, climate change, and economic instability.  Never read the book, but now that the movie is out, maybe it could be part of our film series.  Think the Barkely theater would let us co-sponsor? :)

Check out the Coal doc tonight, June 19th,  on KCTS and online. Can we bring it to the big screen here?

Another one I enjoyed was Truck Farm

Oh, the Hemp one looks really good!

Here is another suggestion- industrial hemp!

What do you think?

Here is another recent suggestion-

We're Not Broke,
It won official selection 2012 Sundance, Independent Film Festival Boston and Dallas International Film Festival.

Anyone else seen it? Another possible Finance Work Group movie?

Let me know!

Another movie suggestion- Anyone seen "Somewhere in New Mexico Before the End of Time"? Check out the trailer here-

With twin threats of Peak Oil and Climate Change staring industrial civilization in the eye, Dr. Guy McPherson, Professor Emeritus from the University of Arizona, demonstrates his thesis of durable living and what power-down actually means. A Michael Sosebee Film.
