Environmental Film Series: May 27, 2019

Anote's Ark

Monday, May 27
Poppa Rollo's Pizza
703 N. Valley Mills Dr.
Waco
6 PM: Pasta/Vegetarian Pizza & Salad Buffet followed by business, film & discussion
 
Runtime: 77 minutes
 
The documentary for the month is Anote's Ark, an outstanding film concerning the submerging of the island nation of Kiribati and the efforts of its President, Anote Tong, to protect his people.  The film is the winner of multiple awards, including  a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 100% --  an  almost unheard of score.
 
Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize, World Cinema – Documentary at Sundance 2018 
 
Note:  At the April regular meeting attendees voted on changing the meeting date because of conflicts with the City Council business sessions on the 3rd Tuesdays.  A Monday meeting was favored by almost everyone in the room.  As it turns out the 4th Monday of the month IS available.  Thus for May we will hold our meeting on a trial basis.  And we apologize to anyone with a conflict, but we had to base a change on those members who expressed a preference on April 16.
