Don't Miss: THE STORY OF STUFF (http://www.storyofstuff.com)

From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.


….. and TIMBER GAP (http://www.earthfilms.org)

This is the story of a community struggling to save the last of Mendocino's coastal redwood forest. A new company has recently moved in, financed by the GAP founder Donald Fisher and family, The Fishers made their fortune off the backs of exploited sweatshop workers, now they are exploiting the redwoods. Grassroots movements of labor, the environment and human rights converge in Seattle to protest the WTO and the huge corporations (like the GAP) that benefit most from "Free Trade".
