Sunday January 11th-The Power of Community (How Cuba Survived Peak Oil) by the Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions, a non-profit that promotes low-energy solutions to the current unsustainable, fossil fuel-based way or life. It is a must-see for survival in the post-oil energy age. ~and~The Crash Course is a condensed version of Chis Martenson's "End of Money" seminar. It offers an introductory explanation of the economy to increase our awareness of the risks we all face.

Sunday January 18th-Who Killed the Electric Car. In 1996, electric cars began to appear on roads all over California. They were quiet and fast, produced no exhaust and ran without gasoline-ten years later, these cars were all deliberately destroyed. Directed by Chris Paine, the film is structured as a documentary murder mystery, with each "suspect" being investigated and and tagged with a motive that smells a lot like gasoline.

Sunday January 25th-Uncounted: the New Math of American Elections, is an explosive new documentary by Emmy award-winning David Earnhardt. It examines the startling ease with which elections can be manipulated to undermine election integrity. Noted computer programmers, statisticians, journalists, and experienced election officials provide the irrefutable proof.
