Food for Thought Film Series

The Food for Thought Film Series is designed to offer education through entertainment. We bring both documentaries and feature films to town on a number of issues related to the Co-op’s mission. Films are shown at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in downtown Moscow February - April and September - November with occasional additional screenings. We are excited to share that we have partnered with the University of Idaho Sustainability Center to make every film free for everyone! In addition, we may partner with additional community organizations and businesses that share interests in the subject matter of a particular film.

November's Film is From the Waste Up: Life Without Plastic

WHEN?: WEDNESDAY, NovemBER 28, AT 7 P.M.(DOORS AT 6:30)
WHERE?: THE KENWORTHY PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE (508 S. MAIN STREET)
HOW MUCH?: FREE TO ALL (SO BRING A FRIEND!)

Among all the depressing environmental films out there, wouldn’t it be great if there were a funny, entertaining one about what it’s actually like to try and live without plastic?  Taina Uitto, who has blogged at Plastic Manners since 2010 about her own plastic-free experiment, has been filming her process since day one.  

This documentary follows the lives of 19 people as they attempt to live without plastic. It explores the concepts of consumerism, waste, and convenience as well as the great abundance in going without. Live vicariously plastic-free as you watch these families navigate through this disposable world. Educational, inspirational, and entertaining.

Upcoming film series events - Spring 2019

Redefining Prosperity - February 27

Divide in Concord - March 20

Catching the Sun - April 17

Our upcoming slate of films for Spring 2019 features three amazing documentary films arranged around the idea of communities coming together and creating mutual benefit for all!

In February, join us for Redefining Prosperity, the story of a gold rush town whose uncertain future was saved by a truly unlikely union. You' might find that this town has reflections in our own community! Next in March, Divide in Concord tells the story of one town’s tenacious quest to improve their environmental stewardship by banning the sale of bottled water in their community. For Earth month, we’ve added Catching the Sun to the lineup, a film about the benefits and pitfalls of renewable solar energy, and the complicated economic situation that surrounds its wide-scale usage.
