Bad Tidings - Daniel Natale (Red Bank, New Jersey) What would you do if your town was sinking? This timely documentary is set in Sea Bright, a New Jersey town that faces the grim reality of climate change. After being devastated by Hurricane Sandy, the townspeople of Sea Bright must now deal with a future of rising sea levels: climate models predict that their homes will be under water in the next 50 years. 2016; 49 min. With an introduction and Q+A session by Director Daniel Natale. River Blue: Can Fashion Save the Planet?- Michael Mcilvride and Roger Williams (Vancouver, Canada) With images that are both stunning and shocking, RiverBlue is a call to action, to manufacture our clothing in more sustainable ways. The filmmakers follow Mark Angelo, an advocate for the world’s rivers, as he journeys through pristine and polluted waterways, to expose a deeply disturbing, and unknown, side of the fashion industry. Harsh chemical dyes, and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, in the manufacturing of our clothing, are destroying rivers world-wide. 2016; 90 min. With an introduction and Q+A session by Director Roger Williams.
