HICCA Film Club February Screening

You are welcome to join us on February 8th at 8pm for the next HICCA Film Club screening – a documentary of a covert mission to film the killing of hundreds of dolphins in a small cove in Japan.  Here’s the synopsis :

Academy Award® Winner for Best Documentary of 2009, THE COVE follows an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers as they embark on a covert mission to penetrate a remote and hidden cove in Taiji, Japan, shining a light on a dark and deadly secret. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras in fake rocks, the team uncovers how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of massive ecological crimes happening worldwide. The result is a provocative mix of investigative journalism, eco-adventure and arresting imagery, adding up to an unforgettable story that has inspired audiences worldwide to action.

THE COVE is directed by Louie Psihoyos and produced by Paula DuPré Pesmen and Fisher Stevens. The film is written by Mark Monroe. The executive producer is Jim Clark and the co-producer is Olivia Ahnemann.

 

We look forward to seeing you there !

HICCA Film Club screening – The Story of Stuff

Posted by: hicca | December 1, 2011

HICCA Film Club Screening – Dumpster Dining

This month’s HICCA Film Club meeting will take a look at some radically alternative ways of dealing with the worst excesses of human consumption.

Freeganism might not be to everyone’s taste ( pun intended!) but protagonists look upon this as a lifestyle choice that, if nothing else, helps them highlight the amount of ‘stuff’ – whether it’s food or material goods – that is not only created, but is just thrown away when it could still be put to good use.

We’ve got two short films to present,  followed by a discussion led by two members of the Cambridge Transition Group – come and join us for what’s sure to be an interesting session !
