Movie Night - "Everything's Cool"
Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (PST)
by Filmakers: Judith Helfand and Daniel B. Gold
Everything’s Cool is a toxic comedy about the most dangerous chasm ever to emerge between scientific understanding and political action: Global Warming. The good news: America finally gets global warming; the chasm is closing and the debate is over. The bad news: the United States, the country that will determine the fate of the globe, must transform its fossil fuel based economy fast (like in a minute). While the industry-funded nay-sayers sing what just might be their swan song of scientific doubt and deception, a group of self-appointed global warming messengers are on a life or death quest to find the iconic image, proper language, and points of leverage to help the public go from embracing the urgency of the problem to creating the political will necessary to push for a new energy economy. Hold on — this is bigger than changing your light bulbs. (Source: http://everythingscool.org)
Judith Helfand (Writer, Director, Producer)
Filmmaker, activist and educator Judith Helfand is best known for her ability to take the dark, cynical worlds of chemical exposure and heedless corporate behavior and make them personal, resonant, highly charged, and entertaining. Her films, "The Uprising of '34" (Co-directed with George Stoney), the Sundance award winning "Blue Vinyl" (for which she and Co-Director Daniel Gold were nominated for two Emmy's), and its Peabody award winning "prequel" "A Healthy Baby Girl" (a five-year "video-diary" about her experience with DES related cancer), explore home, class, corporate accountability, intergenerational relationships and the ever shrinking border between what is "personal" and what is a critical part of the public record.
Daniel B. Gold (Writer, Director, Producer, Director of Photography)
Daniel B. Gold won the 2002 Sundance "Excellence in Cinematography Award" for his work on "Blue Vinyl", which he co-directed and co-produced.
