News: 'An Inconvenient Truth' in Brownsville

Originally uploaded by

On Jan. 5, Brownsville's All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church will screen 'An Inconvenient Truth,' former U.S. Vice President Al Gore's documentary about climate change. The film is part of the First Fiday Film Series.

The film, now out on DVD, documents Gore's educational campaign on global warmimg. Gore recently released a book with the same name about climate change.

Many critics praised the film for complellingly explaining and displaying the disasterous effects of global warming on our planet. A friend of mine said the film changed the way she lives and encouraged her to recycle more and not use environmentally damaging products.

It's a great sign of progress that an institution is willing to screen such a film to the public in Brownsville. Remember, our local Cinemark theaters ignored it when it was in wide distribution earlier this year.

The church is located at 124 Paredes Line Road (across the street from The Vermillion). Doors Open at 7 p.m. and the screening begins at 8. Call Georgiana Duarte: 943-6503, or Julio & Elsa Noboa: 350-5862 for more info.

Brownsville folk will be traumatized after watching this flick. It will make them regret going through all those non-biodegradable styrofoam cups in the 80s. When they get to the part about Mt. Kilimanjaro...damn. I went organic and started recycling more. Great movie and reality check though.
