Sometimes you need a little push to leave the house in this cold weather! Why not join the New Jersey Sierra Club to watch at the Princeton Environmental Film Festival screening of “Musicwood”, an adventure-filled journey, a political thriller with music at its heart. An unusual band of the most famous guitar-makers in the world (Bob Taylor of Taylor guitars, Chris Martin of Martin Guitars and Dave Berryman of Gibson Guitars) travel together into the heart of one of the most primeval rainforests on the planet. Their mission: to negotiate with Native American loggers and change the way this forest is logged before it’s too late for acoustic guitars. “Musicwood” is a culture clash of staggering proportions. Native Americans who’ve been given a notoriously raw deal from the US government are distrustful of the white man telling them what to do. Enter Greenpeace, a radical environmental group, and soon all are battling over a forest that is the last of its kind on the planet. As the tug-of-war over natural resources unfolds, acoustic virtuosos such as Kaki King, Yo La Tengo, The Antlers, and Steve Earle offer some of the most profound insights in the form of a soundtrack, which doubles as the heartbeat of this debate. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Josh Granger and Maxine Trump. When: Thursday February 6th at 7 PM
Where: Princeton Public Library 65 Witherspoon St. Princeton, NJ RSVP: Email Nicole at [masked]
