What we're about

This is a group people who describe themselves as activists or advocates; people who are film makers or who have access to facilities where we can show films; people who want to make a difference; and/or people who just like to watch films (mostly documentaries). Films for Action is specifically NOT political so we will not be supporting a specific political party. The goal is to leverage the power of story to help advocates/activists motivate and inspire change. We are open to the topics that we will cover so if you have a specific interest or cause let us know. Join and let's see what happens!

Sundance Sunset Theater

Another unofficial event. I received an e-mail indicating that we may be able to get free tickets. To claim free tickets, you will need to go to http://bit.ly/CI-comps and enter the code "SOPHIE" (NOTE: These instructions are a little different. I am hoping that you don't have problems with this.) I suspect that limited ticket quantities are available and they are working to get people to the theater. NOTE: James Balog will be flying out to do a a Q & A after Saturday's show. For information on the location: https://www.sundancecinemas.com/sunset_insiders_guide.html This is a very interesting movie. (IMO)

Annenberg Space for Photography -- Generation Wealth
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

The Annenberg Space for Photography has an exhibit Generation Wealth by Lauren Greenfield. "GENERATION WEALTH by Lauren Greenfield examines the influence of affluence over the last 25 years, illustrating the globalization of materialism, celebrity culture and social status. This timely, thought-provoking collection explores how “keeping up with the Joneses” has become Keeping Up with the Kardashians, magnifying the aspirational gap between what we want and what we can afford. The exhibit is not about the rich, but the pervasive desire for more." As my schedule is in flux, I am not going to set a specific day and time. If people would like to set up separate days and times, please feel free to do so. You can use the comments section to coordinate. (I can post something more specific when I know there is a group that is going.) This looks very interesting. Details on parking can be found at https://www.annenbergphotospace.org/visit The parking is not very expensive and the exhibit is free. Exhibit is available through August 13th but I would not wait too long.
