A Special Day
Set in May 1938 this film takes place on the day Hitler arrives in Italy to meet Mussolini for the first time, and all Rome seems to be present.

He, a distraught a man facing personal, legal, and professional ruin because he is gay. As day passes into night, their chance meeting evolves into a special relationship that will forever change their views on life, love, and politics.

GMO OMG by Jeremy Seifert

Free Community Screening

GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?

GMO OMG arguably does for genetically modified organisms what Al Gore’s 2006 Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth did for climate change.” — The Progressive

“Even those who have been paying close attention to these issues are likely to glean some new insight into the various branches of the matter.” — Village Voice
