Fest films available at SYRCL library

So you say you just couldn’t see all of the films at this year’s Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival?

SYRCL has now established its own Film Festival library, which will feature almost all of the films from the 2005 festival, as well as a variety of films from the past three years of the event (including some interesting ones that didn’t make the cut).

Films can be rented for one week for private screenings at a minimal cost. The Festival Library is at the SYRCL Office, 216 Main St., Nevada City, and is open during normal business hours. For more information, contact Kathy at 265-5961, ext. 202.

Social Film Seriesat Magic Theater

A quiet but steadfast critic of United States foreign policy for decades, in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Noam Chomsky’s profile took a quantum leap as he provided analysis and historical perspective to concerned citizens of the world. During the following months, he gave dozens of talks on four continents, conducted scores of interviews and published a book, “9-11,” in 22 countries. “9-11” became a surprise bestseller in many of them, including Japan, where this video was gleaned from these talks. By independent Japanese production house Siglo and American film director John Junkerman. 72 min. http://www.powerandterror.com

The film starts at 7:35 p.m., A suggested donation of $4.
