CANCELLED: This event has been cancelled. There is a volunteer appreciation event planned for the 15th instead.
The Sierra Club Chinook Group hosts a monthly meeting series on the 1st Wed. of every month from 7 to 9 pm at the Calgary Area Outdoor Council at 1111 Memorial Drive NW.
Michael Franti, world renowned musician and human rights worker, travels to Iraq, Palestine and Israel to explore the human cost of war with a group of friends, some video cameras and his guitar.
A compelling soundtrack, visual and musical montages, and Franti's intimate voiceovers make the film speak to the MTV, X, Y, and Z generations, as well as to baby boomers. A true armchair travel film pulling the audience into these war zones in the company of Michael's guitar, eloquence and wit - you feel the humanity, artistic resilience and sometimes horrific experience of what it's like to live under the bombs and military occupation.
With its guerrilla style footage captured in active war zones, the documentary is unlike the many academic and politically driven pieces in the marketplace, instead of offering the audience a sense of intimate travel and the opportunity to hear the voices of everyday people living, creating and surviving under the harsh conditions of war and occupation.
