Speaker:  Director Louis Fox of Free Range Studios

We will show 5 short films from the Story of Stuff series. We are thrilled to have Director Louis Fox of Free Range Studios join us after the movie for a discussion about the films. If you are not familiar with Story of Stuff, it all began about 7 years ago when Annie Leonard and Free Range Studios put together a 20-minute movie about the way we make, use, and throw away Stuff. It went viral on the internet, unleashing a torrent of pent-up demand for honest conversation about the impacts of our consumer-crazed culture on people and the planet. Since then It has been viewed more than 40 million times worldwide. From this the Story of Stuff Project emerged, including, among other things, more films that address different topics brought up during the original film.

Fairfax Scoop

Barnabe Farms in San Geronimo, lavender and honey grown in West Marin. Fairfax Scoop has gone on to become one of Marin's hottest destinations for ice cream served in cookie-like, waffled cones and cups made fresh, on the premises, also from organic ingredients. A dozen flavors are served at any time; these always include one soy ice cream and one sorbet.

Recently they churned up the best peach ice cream I've ever had and a creamy, bracing lemon poppy seed. Other interesting taste treats are Grasshopper, mint ice cream colored green with spirulina, with chunks of Newman's Own organic mint cookies; and Hula Dance, coconut ice cream rippled with fudge, macadamia nuts and white chocolate. At Christmastime, their eggnog ice cream is unbeatable, as is a pumpkin made with sugar pie pumpkins from Allstar Organics in Nicasio.
