This week, we highlight a few movies where show business is a recurring theme, from celebrating the writing craft with Joan Didion, to personal stories affected by the Hollywood machine with Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, and we conclude this week with new documentary bringing us another side of cinema – with Hitler’s Hollywood.
This week we’re happy to recognize Earth Day - TODAY - April 22nd.
Most of us believe in Climate change, and what better way to celebrate our planet than to engage through cinema. Today, we highlight 3 films anchored on this subject of the environment, along with some of the amazing wildlife being challenged by our climate crisis.
Virunga, an extraordinary film sharing the biodiversity of the Congo and winner of 54 intl film awards – The Vanishing of Bees, an important movie released in 2009 that you may not have seen, and Origins, an interesting journey through our biological roots that raises concerns about how technology is choking our environment.
