Global Issues Film Festival - This Land is Our Land

This Land is Our Land (2010), Saturday, Feb. 2, 1 p.m. (46 minutes) directed by David Bollier. For more than three decades, transnational corporations have been busy buying up what used to be known as the commons, everything from our forests and our oceans to our broadcast airwaves and our most important intellectual and cultural works. This film highlights the movement to reclaim the commons by modeling practical alternatives to the corporate monopoly of power.

Blood of the Amazon (2011), Thursday, Jan. 31, 7 p.m. (80 minutes) directed by Nicola Peel,  Blood of the Amazon  looks at environmental damage in Ecuador at the hands of oil companies.

Global Issues Film Festival - The 800 Mile Wall

The 800 Mile Wall (2009), Wednesday Jan. 30 at 7 p.m., (90 minutes) directed by  John Carlos Frey, The 800 Mile Wall highlights the construction of the new border walls along the U.S.-Mexico border as well as the effect on migrants trying to cross into the U.S. This powerful 90-minute film is an unflinching look at a failed U.S. border strategy that many believe has caused the death of thousands of migrants and violates fundamental human rights.
