Tonight’s films are the first in a series of three Thursdays this month. More about the Do Something Reel Film Festival from the Take-Up Productions web site:
Whole Foods Market presents the Do Something Reel Film Festival, a collection of six provocative, character-driven films focused on passionate people making a world of difference. From the Coal River Valley of West Virginia to the inner city of Detroit, from vanishing bee populations to the evolution of the National School Lunch Program, from farmers and active everyday citizens to doctors and scientists, the Do Something Reel line-up provides a moving, eye-opening look at how the choices we make can have a huge impact on our bodies, our economy, and our environment. We hope these films will inspire you to reflect on what you’re passionate about, and how you can make a difference!
