Garbage! The Revolution
Location: 600 4th St, West Sacramento - that's the corner of 4th & F in West Sacramento, just over the river from downtown.
One day before this film hits the 2008 Hot Docs Fest, you can experience it here in Sacramento!
A new feature length documentary by filmmaker Andrew Nisker takes an average urban family and asks them to keep every scrap of garbage that they create for three months. The film takes them on a journey to reveal what their daily consumption is doing to the planet. By the end of this trash odyssey, the average person can connect the dots between their actions and the environment.
"Garbage!" candidly portrays the threat to our environment as the McDonald family tracks their waste output for three months. As they discover where their garbage goes and at what cost to the environment, the McDonald household engages the audience with an 'open-door reality-check.' Meticulous tracking of consumption and waste, right down to the children's lunchboxes result in not only candid comments, but also some rather enlightening and even humorous moments.
Digital projection on to a large screen. Seating is mostly on folding chairs. Feel free to bring a pillow or cushion (or even your own chair).
