AS ONE OF THE VENUES FOR THE 2014 SOCIAL JUSTICE FILM FESTIVAL, WE ARE EXTREMELY PLEASED TO PRESENT:
Film:
"THE GHOSTS IN OUR
MACHINE"
(60 min, Liz Marshall, 2013)
With Guest Rachel Bjork from NARN, and Heather Bolint, Seattle Director of the Humane League
With the exceptionof our companion animals and a few wild and stray species within our urban environments, we experience animals daily only as the food, clothing, animal-tested goods and entertainment we make of them. This moral dilemma is often hidden from our view.
This multi-award winning documentary charts acclaimed photographer Jo-Anne McArthur’s efforts to bring wider attention to a topic that most of humankind strives hard to avoid. Are non-human animals property to be owned and used?  Or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?
Join us for a facilitated discussion after the film with NARN.

Film:
"LAST CALL"
(90 min, Enrico Cerasuolo and Massimo Arvat, 2013)
THE UNTOLD REASONS FOR THE GLOBAL CRISIS
LAST CALL examines the predictions and impact of one of the most important and controversial environmental books of all time, ‘The Limits to Growth,’ published four decades ago.
It tells the story of the rise and fall, and today's rebirth of one of the most controversial and inspiring movements of all times - the struggle to come to terms with global climate change and limits to growth. Its message is today more relevant than ever: unlimited growth in a limited planet will bring our society and environment into overshoot and on the edge of collapse. Supported by extraordinary archive materials, 'The Limits to Growth' authors provide a provocative insight on the reasons of the global crisis and share their visions of our common future.
Is there still time for a last call?

Film:
"THE GREAT VACATION
SQUEEZE"
(27 min, John de Graaf, 2014)
WITH THE FILMMAKER, JOHN DE GRAAF
Plus Short Films!

From the producer of the classic AFFLUENZA, this film shows why vacations are important for productivity, happiness, family bonding and especially health.
Americans have the shortest vacations of any rich country. And they are actually getting even shorter. The U.S. is one of only five countries in the world -- the others are Burma, Nepal, Suriname and Guyana -- which have no law guaranteeing any paid vacation time for workers. 
Vacations matter -- for productivity, happiness, family bonding and especially, health.
See the Trailer and more information here:

Join us following the film for a discussion with John de Graaf, the filmmaker, and the National Organizer of the TAKE BACK YOUR TIME movement.
LEARN WHAT YOU CAN DO TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE IN THE U.S.
(Event is FREE and open to the public! ...but Donations are kindly accepted).
