A *culture is not optional project
FILM – Divide in Concord
April 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Octogenarian Jean Hill learned some disturbing facts from her grandson. She learned of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and its far-reaching effects on the health of many species, including humans. She also learned that we in the US buy ½ BILLION bottles of water every week – enough to circle the globe 5 times. Only about 20% are recycled and the rest end up in landfills, water or incinerators. This inspired her to start a campaign to ban single-use water bottles in Concord, MA., home of “the shot heard round the world” that launched the American Revolution. This film covers this effort, and the ways in which it was smeared by partisan politics. Raises real and timely issues about personal choices and care for community. 2015 (82 minutes, strong language)
