Join us for the next Chicago Filmmakers Green Screen Environmental Series: LAST CALL AT THE OASIS Directed by Jessica Yu. USA, 2012, 105 min
From the company that brought us An Inconvenient Truth;Food, Inc.; and Waiting for "Superman", Last Call at the Oasis presents a powerful argument for why the global water crisis will be the central issue facing our world this century. This shocking investigation into the world's water crisis draws upon the work of scientists and activists including the real Erin Brockovich. Academy Award-winning director Jessica Yu offers interviews and hard evidence to bolster an urgent message: The fresh, clean water that H2O-hogging Americans take for granted will not last forever. Moreover, the supply is both shrinking and being polluted faster than most of us realize. Experts chiming in alongside Brockovich including hydrologists, biologists, grassroots water activists, bottled-water opponents and a PR firm trying to market eco-conscious recycled water to skeptical consumers make it clear why the film is titled Last Call, not Wake-Up Call - it’s already too late for that.

Welcome film/movie fans! - Join us to meet other local Indie & Documentary film fans. Discuss and recommend indi films, documentaries, and other movies to one another.
The idea is to watch the films that pose various moral/ethical questions or expend awareness about different issues that our society and individuals are facing. Therefore we will be focusing on watching Independent or Documentary films rather than watching typical Hollywood movies that are mostly for entertaining purposes.
Choosing documentary films we will primarily focus on the following topics: Personal Growth, Self Improvement/Empowerment, Spirituality, Global Warming, Ecological/Environmental Issues, Sustainable/Green Technologies, Alternative Energy, Corporate/Industrial/Governmental abuse, Ethical/Moral issues, Vegetarianism/Veganism, Genetically Modified Food & GMO, Alternative Healing. However, we are open to any kind of films/movies that raise any ethical and other important topics suggested by our members.
Please feel free to recommend us movies/films that you would like to watch, movies/films that you watched and would like to watch again, or just movies/films that you suggest to watch for others.
