Thursday May 20th: A Presentation By The Film-Makers of "Within Reach"
By Films For Action / filmsforaction.org
Apr 21, 2010

7:00 to 8:30pm. Liberty Hall. 644 Mass St. Lawrence, KS. $3.




In celebration and exploration of all things green, two bicyclists are on a year-long journey around the United States to share what they've learned about sustainable communities. They’ve traveled more than 6,000 miles to visit and film 100 sustainable communities of all types, working to capture in film the abundance of community-oriented solutions out there that are already working. The result of their effort will be "Within Reach," a feature-length documentary to be released in 2011.

Join Films For Action at Liberty Hall on May 20th as we welcome Ryan and Mandy to Lawrence. The two film-makers will be sharing with us what they have learned along their journey with an interactive presentation, video-clips from the film in progress, and a dynamic group exercise to help recognize the gifts and skills our community already has to create a bright green future here in Lawrence.

For more information, check their website, and get excited for this special Films For Action event.
