NYC Free Fim Screening Confirmed 21-April-2013!
NYC Free Fim Screening Confirmed 21-April-2013!

Great news!  I got the minimum number of people for Meetup.com to announce the event, so it's official.  We are screening at the Brecht Forum 451 West Street, New York, NY (edit map) on Sunday, April 21, at 4:00 pm.

We'll show a short film - 'Climate Change Is Simple' (remix), and a longer one 'The Twin Sides Of The Fossil Fuel Coin'.  Both focus on the most important topic I can think of - the survival of the human race, and all higher life forms on Earth!  If we only get one shot at showing the deadly truth, I want to 'hit 'em with my best shot' - and those two films - more than any I know, really spell out how late the hour really is...

Both films are available online at the following URLs:

Climate Change Is Simple (remix) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pznsPkJy2x8

The Twin Sides Of The Fossil Fuel Coin - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ina16XSJQvM

If you can't make it to the screening, PLEASE take the time to watch these films online!

Both films combined are only a little over an hour.  If people want to stay, I've got 100+ more to choose from - all great!  If you have any questions, or would like to help with the screening, or the publicity for it, please email me at jhecht@ix.netcom.com.  Or call, and we can talk directly.  My numbers are below.

I look forward to seeing you all at the screening (bring your friends) - and please RSVP to me at the email above, so I know how many chairs to set up.

Thanks!

Schooling the World (2010)
