Free Press free movie – “Healthcare – the Movie”

Tuesday, March 27, 2012 7:30pm.

This documentary provides the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point they were essentially the same. Most people under the age of 50, in both countries, are not aware of the intensity of the political struggle that led to the universal medical care system in Canada. Nor are they aware of the public relations campaigns, still active today, that have been prevalent in the United States since the early 1900’s to dissuade the public from supporting national health care. Co-sponsored by the Single-Payer Action Network-Ohio, Columbus Film Council, the Drexel, the Central Ohio Green Education Fund, and the Free Press.

Free Press FREE Movie: “War in the Mind” Tuesday, February 28 and Discussion

Tuesday, February 28, 2012• 7:30pm – 9:00pm – followed by discussion.
Director Judy Jackson has taken a tough emotional journey in this penetrating study of PTSD and our young war veterans. It’s called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: the unending echo of battle etched in the brain may affect up to 15% of soldiers by some estimates. It can destroy families, and can leave its sufferers unable to work, addiction addled and changed. All the soldiers who bravely speak out in this film are doing so because they want us to understand what they endure. They also want to reach out to others who are suffering in silence, and may feel the only way of ending their pain is ending their lives. War in the Mind also investigates the issue of soldier suicide. Statistics from past and present wars tell the sad story of the magnitude of this problem. Families who have felt invisible, their sons’ stories unacknowledged, tell of the impact of their loss.

Free Movie: Everything’s Cool!, Dubya’s Answer To The Global Warming

You are invited to the free movie:
“Everything’s Cool!”
Dubya’s answer to the global warming crisis

Tuesday, August 26, 2008 at 7:30pm
Drexel East Theater, 2254 East Main Street, Bexley

Filmmakers follow the country and our global warming messengers through an extraordinary three years of transformation,
from 2003-to the eve of 2007, with sometimes funny, sometimes tragic experiences.

EVERYTHING’S COOL is a film about America finally “getting” global warming in the wake of the most dangerous chasm ever to emerge between scientific understanding
and political action. While industry funded nay-sayers sing what just might be their swan song of pseudo-scientific deception, a group of self-appointed global warming messengers
went on a high stakes quest to find the iconic image, the magic language, the points of leverage that will finally create the political will to move the United States from its reliance on fossil fuels
to the new clean energy economy – AND FAST.
Hold on… this is bigger than changing your light bulbs.
