One Earth Film Festival has scheduled its first encore event for Sunday May 20 at greenline wheels in Oak Park. Two of the films featured during the main festival weekend will be screened again: Food Patriots and Tapped. If you missed either of these fascinating films - or want to see them again for further thought and discussion - please join us! Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig’s debut feature is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water. This timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water.

Jeff Spitz, local filmmaker, will be present to host the screening of Food Patriots. "Food Patriots is focused on an issue that directly touches all of us — food. We aim to tell a story that unlocks the potential for healthier lives, a less polluted environment and new jobs that would evolve naturally if Americans shift by just 10% the way they buy, eat and educate the next generation about food." We will have the opportunity to see a 19-minute segment of this film that is still a work-in-progress! View Food Patriots trailer.
