Aside from the drama of today's rescue by former pres Bill Clinton, here's something else to enrapture you...
EARTH DAYS opens @ The Quad Cinema on Friday, August 14th
After playing to great acclaim at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, Robert Stone’s stunning documentary is coming to the Quad Cinema. It’s all the rage now in the Age of Al Gore and Obama, but once upon a time, everyone in America was not “going Green.” Using personal testimony and rare archival media, EARTH DAYS looks back to the dawn of the modern environmental movement, from its post-war rustlings in the 1950s, to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration, President Nixon’s unlikely creation of the EPA, and beyond. The extraordinary stories of the era's pioneers -- including Population Bomb author Paul Ehrlich, Whole Earth Catalogfounder Stewart Brand, Apollo Nine astronaut Rusty Schweickart and renewable energy pioneer Hunter Lovins -- illuminate the fact that positive changes in social attitudes, technological possibilities and political determination can take place very rapidly if the will exists.
Director Robert Stone will be in-person opening night for a Q&A. The Quad Cinema is located at 34 W. 13th Street. Screening times and advance tickets will be available soon @ www.Movietickets.com.
