First film is DEATH AT A FUNERAL , hilarious British black comedy.
"As the mourners and guests at a British country manor struggle valiantly to "keep a stiff upper lip" a dignified ceremony devolves into a hilarious no-holds-barred debacle of misplaced cadavers, indecent exposure and shocking family secrets. "

The second film on Nov 4 is GARBAGE WARRIOR an entertaining and inspiring documentary about renegade New Mexico architect Michael Reynolds who builds sustainable homes he calls "Earthships" partially out of garbage: old tires, beer cans and water bottles. For 30 years he has been building thermal mass and energy-independent housing, self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. Garbage Warrior is a timely portrait of a determined visionary, a hero of the 21st century. It was nominated for the Kyoto Planet for Change Award.
