Two years in the making, DEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA will be out in early 2016. The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a nice pre-launch plug with this interview with the film’s narrator and Executive Producer Mark Ruffalo.
We also got some good press for our brand new DEAR GOVERNOR BROWN film, which I showed with Mark for a gathering of Hollywood A-listers early in Los Angeles in November. The film strongly reminds the four-term green governor that the only way to limit climate-change-contributing emissions is to keep fossil fuels in the ground. The film will have its public premiere at the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival in Nevada City, CA, January 15.
PARADISE IS THERE, our film memoir accompanying Natalie Merchant’s new CD, the re-recordings of her hit album ‘Tigerlily,’ is winding up a successful run of thirty-five, one-night-only screenings across the country with five showings at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. Natalie will be at the December 12th screening for a Q&A following the film.
Our tour of the Hudson Valley screening our short films from the HUDSON, RIVER AT RISK series continues in December, with events in Nyack on December 8 and Hudson on December 12. We’ve also been out filming new short videos to add to the series, focused on the continued pollution of the valley by PCBs and the threat of big, new transmission lines carrying old-school fuel from Western New York to Manhattan.
Our second film shot in Louisiana, AFTER THE SPILL, will have its premieres in early January in Lafayette, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, featuring post-screening panels made up of some of the film’s contributors, including James Carville, Lt. Gen. Russell Honore, John Barry, Nick Spitzer and more. It will also show at the Wild & Scenic festival in Nevada City on January 16.
