Come join Green Planet Films for another film night! We will be screening two short documentary films that feature two very unique and beautiful parts of the world: the deserts of Syria and the Tuamotus Atolls in the South Pacific. Both films highlight the indigenous people living in these remote areas and expose the environmental and social problems that plague them.

Giuseppe Bucciarelli, the writer, director and producer of AHMED AND THE RETURN OF THE ARAB PHOENIX will be in attendance to present his film and answer questions.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Socializing at 7:00pm, films start at 8:00pm.

A SLOW BOAT TO SOMEWHERE
Ride along on a rustic, and rusting, Polynesian cargo boat as it makes deliveries to 21 of the globe's most isolated coral reef atolls in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean and documents the impacts the the West has had one these once self sufficient island communities. Along the 3,000-mile route meet black pearl divers, the man who found the Kon Tiki, Marlon Brando's "Mutiny on the Bounty" girlfriend, a ship laden with NFL-sized crewman and many more . . . all set against the backdrop of a fast-and-forever changing Paradise. Film by Jon Bowermaster. 23 min

AHMED AND THE RETURN OF THE ARAB PHOENIX
Meet Ahmed, a Bedouin sheep herder who has committed his life to saving the Bald Ibis, a critically endangered bird with a face "only a mother could love." The rapid extinction of this rare bird is the result of increasing human population, hunting and land degradation. Ahmed and his small team of fellow Preservationists have made it their mission to save the Bald Ibis, and inextricably, Ahmed's land and culture. Film by Giuseppe Bucciarelli. 26 min
