Movies for Discussion: “Stink

Friday, April 29, 7:00 pm

"Stink" is being hailed as the documentary that the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see. Variety called it a “Michael-Moore style takedown of the fragrance industry.” In the film, father and filmmaker Jon Whelan investigates what exactly is in the products he and his children are exposed to every day. The film questions why consumers don’t know about all of the chemicals in common household products and what, if anything, our elected officials are doing to regulate the chemical industry. Sponsored by the Lewisboro Sustainability Committee. Suggested donation of $5 at the door to fund viewing license fees.  Please register at 875-9004 or lewisborolibrary@gmail.com.

 

Movies for Discussion: “Living for 32

Friday, May 6, 7:30 pm

This moving documentary is about the 32 people murdered in the Virginia Tech shooting, as told through the eyes of injured student Colin Goddard. After recovering and finishing his degree, Colin decided to volunteer for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the nation’s largest gun control organization. He traveled America wearing a hidden camera and going undercover into gun shows, to prove how easy it is for anyone to buy a gun, with no identification, no Brady background check, and just a wad of cash. Representatives from the Northern Westchester branch of the Brady Campaign will be on hand to answer questions following the film.

 

Movies for Discussion: “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret”

Friday, May 20, 7:00 pm

The groundbreaking film Cowspiracy presents shocking truths about the effects of industrial animal agriculture on the planet. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion and virtually every other environmental ill - and one of the most controversial environmental secrets in the world of conservation. This documentary screening is sponsored by the Lewisboro Sustainability Committee. There is a suggested donation of $5 at the door to fund viewing license fees.
