World Premiere!!! Got the Facts on Milk? the Milk Documentary

 

This will be a night to remember! Vegan drinks is proud to help promote the world premiere of a film made by one of our very own Vegan Drinkers, Shira Lane!

 

Buy tickets here: http://www.movietickets.com/purchase.asp?exid=amc&house_id=9905&movie_id=121148&perfd=08242011&perft=19:30

 

When you arrive, there will be a red carpet shindig, and those who come to the screening are invited to take pictures on the red carpet. The moviemakers will post those pictures on their Facebook page and everyone can tag themselves.

 

The movie will start at 7:30. Please arrive 15-20 minutes before hand to pick up your advance tickets and check out the red carpet. Please also leave ample time for parking. The first three hours in the garage are free; validation in the movie theater gets you an additional 2 hours for $3. 

 

After the screening there will be a quick Q&A panel. Confirmed panelists include the executive producer Steven Tobenkin, the filmmaker Shira Lane, and Julieanna Hever, M.S., R.D., C.P.T., author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition, and executive director of Earthsave, International.

 

Then there will be an after-party directly across the way at UMMBA, a Brazilian restaurant, from 9:30 or so to about 11:30-12:00. We will have a section to ourselves and UMMBA will be providing special vegan finger food! Of course you can also buy drinks to your heart's content. Have a designated driver handy if you take that last part too seriously. :)

 

 

Tickets are $13.50. We'll send out another e-mail with a link to purchase advance tickets later in the week. This theater has assigned seating, so the best seats in the house will go to those who get theirs first.  An RSVP here on the meetup does not guarantee you a seat.


Other surprises are in the works. See you there!

-------------

Got the facts on Milk? is a wildly entertaining, partly animated feature documentary that questions the deep-rooted American belief in the health benefits of milk. Filmmaker Shira Lane's dairy allergy prompted her to examine the scientific research on the subject, and, baffled by the lack of consensus, she took a road trip to the US Department of Agriculture's Nutrition Information Center for the facts. On her month-long, 4600-mile journey to Washington DC through the American Southwest and Bible Belt, she meets with top doctors and researchers, dietitians, dairy farmers, parents, teachers, and plenty of "ordinary
Americans" who provide both comic relief and food for thought.

The film raises questions about dairy's role in cancer, osteoporosis, weight gain, asthma, acne, early menstruation, and more; covers the preponderance of lactose intolerance in communities of color, and explains why dairy consumption is fraught with high-stakes political, economic, ethical and environmental considerations.

Got the facts on Milk? has won several film festival awards, including the audience award at the 2008 Rhode Island International Film Festival, and has outraged filmgoers around the world. It sparked a riot at the South Korea Green Film Festival, shocked the audience at DocAviv Documentary Film Festival in Israel, and traumatized attendees of the EcoCinema Environmental Film Festival.

    I have one extra ticket. Row I on the aisle. Anyone want to buy that? I went back on line today to get two seats together and it looks like it is filling up. Not a lot of seats left.

    Here is what they got back to me with...
    The system automatically suggests a seat for you so when the seat selection screen comes on there is already a seat checked. If you do not want that seat then guests uncheck that box and check the seat they would like. There have been about 5 tickets sold so the system is working.

    I followed the link to buy a ticket but I was not allowed to select only one seat. Eleven in Row E were highlighted and even when I checked one of those it said: Total number of seats selected do not match number of tickets purchased. What's going on?

    There will be Vegan wine served pre screening with the red carpet shindig.
