WHAT: Rainforest depletion to fuel our cars? That’s not right! But there is a better way—by using recycled fuel, creating local economies, and simply driving less. This evening will be entertaining, educational, and a great way to meet like-minded people who have hope we can overcome our petroleum-dependent ways. Despite the backlash against biofuel, the BFO is showing us a sustainable way!

Films include:
• "Fat of the Land"—a 1995 documentary about four pioneering women traveling around the country transforming fuel from fryer grease. Set back in the day when no one heard about biodiesel, they are encountered with disbelief and awe. Director Nicole Cousini in attendence!
• “Freedom Fuels” (excerpts)—an award winning documentary about the current state of biodiesel
• “Revolution Green” (excerpts) about the state of sustainable biodiesel in America today
• Other shorts and newsclips
With presentations about big biodiesel’s impact on Borneo and Argentina.
And…live puppetry with the Big Tadoo Puppet Crew, an Ask a Mechanic booth, special, limited edition t-shirt silk screening assembly line, and homemade popcorn.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 30th

7 – 10 p.m.

WHERE: La Pena Cultural Center,

3105 Shattuck Ave.

COST: $10-20 entry (no one turned away for lack of funds)
