THIN ICE: Free Screening & Discussion @ Humanist Hall
Jul 16 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM





Another chance to see this eye-opening film from the 2014 festival!

Travel through the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the USA with geologist Simon Lamb to get this insider’s view of the astonishing range of people working to understand the world’s changing climate. As climate science has come under increasing attack, the scientists in THIN ICE talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candor and directness. This creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet’s changing climate, and provides a compelling case for rising CO2 as the main cause. This is a unique project: a film about climate science filmed by a scientist and put together by award-winning documentary filmmaker David Sington.

Simon Lamb and David Sington, New Zealand/UK, 2013, 73 mins

MONDO BANANA: Free Screening & Discussion @ Koret Auditorium, San Francisco Public Library Main Branch
Aug 27 @ 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM



Join us for a FREE screening of MONDO BANANA, an audience favorite from this year’s festival, and journey to the world of bananas!

Deep in the forests of Sumatra, a Finnish sea captain seeks an elusive banana. In a Kolkata kitchen, Bengali chefs prepare scrumptious banana stalk curries. As the sun blazes in Kuala Lumpur, a Chinese exorcist calls forth an evil banana spirit… Embarking on an international journey through the vibrant world of human-banana relationships,Bay Area filmmaker Ryan White explores the personal, cultural, and environmental importance of one of the world’s favorite fruits. A delicious blend of video art and ethnographic film, MONDO BANANA is a wild medley of shadow puppetry, culinary demonstrations, exorcisms, scientific research, performance art, anthropology, underground film, and dragon-dancing that peels away the secrets of human-banana relations and celebrates the age-old connection between people and plants.
