Of Special Note this Month
Film Night
Thursday, August 14, 7 p.m.
The Green Store / O.B. Green Center
This month's feature film is the award winning documentary Who Bombed Judi Bari? The film tells the story of people who risked their lives to save the California redwoods. In 1990, a car bomb blew up the vehicle of two prominent Earth First! redwood activists, Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney. The activists were then accused of bombing themselves. Twelve years later Judi and Darryl won a landmark lawsuit against the FBI, proving that officers falsified evidence and intentionally tried to frame them. Stricken by cancer and close to death, Judi Bari gives touching testimony in the film about the attempt on her life and her lawsuit against the FBI. To date, the real bomber has never even been searched for and remains at-large. The Green Store is located at 4843 Voltaire St. For more information call (619) 225-1083.Free of charge.

"More than Honey"
Friday, August 15, 7 p.m.
World Beat Center
Celebrate National Honey Bee Day—Saturday, August 16—by going to the movies the night before! More than Honey is a documentary by the Swiss filmmaker Marcus Imhoof, which looks into the fascinating world of bees, showing small family beekeepers and industrialized honey farms. More than Honey is a film on the relationship between humankind and honeybees, about nature and about our future. Honeybees show us that stability is just as unhealthy as unlimited growth, that crises and disasters are triggering evolution, and that salvation sometimes comes from a completely unexpected direction. "If bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would only have four years left to live." -Albert Einstein. The World Beat Center is located at 2100 Park Blvd., 92101. To see the film's trailer visit www.morethanhoneyfilm.com. Suggested donation.
