An Inconvenient Sequel - Truth to Power screening
Vancouver Community Library

"A decade after AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes — in moments both private and public, funny and poignant — as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion."

Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve Documentary screening
Cascade Park Community Library, Vancouver

Money plays a crucial role in our daily lives. Not only is it the currency which allows us to lead lives of relative health and comfort, but many would argue that it also serves as the driving force behind many of the world's gravest ills. Despite its overwhelming dominance in dictating a quality of life for hundreds of millions of American citizens, few understand where their dollar comes from, how it's dispersed and what factors come into play when determining its value. The exhaustive and enlightening feature-length documentary Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve examines the answers to these fundamental questions, and exposes the questionable practices of a highly influential government institution which operates largely in shadow.
