The film, completed in July of 2007, is about Dona Spring sometimes called the “Conscious of Berkeley”, who also happens to be the longest elected green party member in the United States (over 16 years on the City Council of Berkeley).
Among many others, the film shows Dona on TV shows, such as, Oprah Winfrey, Bill O’Reilly and CNN debating the worst elements of the status-quo. Also, Dona is shown with Ralph Nader, Al Gore and Barbara Lee and many local activists.
Dona has been the best vote on the council for environmentalists, peace activists, safe food activists, animal protection advocates and disabled advocates.
The film is 70 minutes and free or a small donation for those who can afford it, at the Unitarian Church at Cedar and Bonita in Berkeley. 7 PM opening remarks and 7:30 PM film showing, Dr. Michael Parenti, author and Berkeley activist will make some remarks before or after the film.
