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.
