The "Arab spring," credited with beginning at the end of 2010, has involved civil uprisings in 18 countries, the removal of five heads of state, and waves of populist resistance in countries far from the Middle East, including our own. It's hard to keep track. There are few people better equipped to help make sense of it all than Stephen Zunes, PhD, one of the foremost U.S. scholars of Middle East affairs and of strategic nonviolent action.

Dr. Zunes will speak in Textor 102 on Wednesday, April 16, 7:00 p.m., on "Democracy Uprisings in the Middle East: Victories and Setbacks."

It's a wrap!

Thank you to all of our guest filmmakers, new media artists, musicians, scholars, scientists, journalists, activists, industry professionals, distributors, bloggers, interns, graduate fellows, junior fellows, Ithaca College faculty and festival goers for making the 17th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival a success!

And special thanks to our funders: Ithaca College, the Park Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, and community support.

SAVE THE DATE FOR the 18th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF)  April 6-12, 2015

FLEFF: A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT

 

IF YOU THINK WASTE IS SOMEONE ELSE’S PROBLEM, THINK AGAIN!

Vast landscapes in China are covered in tons of rubbish. The wide waters of the Ciliwung River in Indonesia are now barely visible under a never-ending tide of plastic. Children swim among leaking bags; mothers wash in the sewage-filled supply. Each year, we now throw away fifty-eight billion disposable cups, billions of plastic bags, 200 billion litres of water bottles, billions of tons of household waste, toxic waste and e-waste.

Academy Award winning actor Jeremy Irons is no stranger to taking centre stage. But his role as our guide in TRASHED highlighting solutions to the pressing environmental problems facing us all, could well be his most important yet. Having faced the worst through much of TRASHED, Jeremy Irons turns to hope. He goes in search of solutions.
