About this blog
The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival from the interns' point of view
Friday, April 8, 2011
Blog posting written by Abby Sophir, Television/Radio '14, FLEFF Intern, St. Louis, Missouri.
Ask yourself: “If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?”
This is the questioned posed by END:CIV, one of the many must-see documentaries airing during FLEFF week.
Even better, if you’re like me and avoid Friday classes, take advantage of the afternoon and head on over to Park 220 at 2 PM on April 15 for conversation with Franklin Lopez, the director of the film. END: CIV is a fast-paced critique of our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation. It is based in part on Endgame, a best-selling book by Derrick Jensen.
You can then catch the movie at 9 PM that night at Cinemapolis.
For anyone interested in documentary production, environmentalism or politics, this FLEFF lab is a great, intimate opportunity!
