Community Cinema: Dirt! The Movie at the Library 

Dirt: Your Porous Friend

Dirt: Your Porous Friend
In this week's issue, City Paper editor Stephen George sets to blowing the tops off the blockheads who insist, all evidence to the contrary, that mountaintop removal is somehow no big threat to Tennessee’s environment). The documentary Dirt! The Movie takes a wider look at the hazards facing what author William Bryant Logan calls “the ecstatic skin of the earth” — industrial farming, mining and urban sprawl, all of which present disease and disasters either at hand or in the offing. NPT-Channel 8 and ITVS co-sponsor a free reception and screening as part of the monthly Community Cinema series at the downtown public library. Show up early at 1 p.m. for the launch of the library’s “Be Part of Our Story” documentary project, which encourages patrons to use a variety of media to tell what the library means to them.
Sat., March 20, 2:30 p.m., 2010
