Mead Film Festival to Offer 'Eye on Outside World'

"Gimme Green" is a look at the American obsession with lawns and the impact it has on our environment, our wallets and our outlook on life. From subdivisions in Florida to sod farms in the arid Southwest, "Gimme Green" peers behind the curtain of the $40 billion industry that fuels our nation's most irrigated crop–the lawn. (Isaac Brown and Eric Flagg. 2006. 27 min.)
"Village of Dust, City of Water" — This film about water is a lyrical and chilling ciné poem about social exploitation over access to water in India, where rural water supplies are redistributed to serve booming cities and whole communities are displaced to create dams. (Sanjay Barnela. 2006. 28 min.)
The American Museum of Natural History will present the second annual Margaret Mead Film Festival of innovative, non-fiction work that is an eye on the outside world. The films will be shown at 7 p.m., on April 10-12 and 17-19, in the first floor conference room of the new Administration and Conference Center on the St. Thomas campus.
This year's festival, hosted by UVI's Communication Program within the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences, will feature the screenings of 10 independent, cultural, documentary films. The film program is free and open to the public. UVI faculty members will be on hand to lead discussions and interpret the films. A limited number of seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
