TWO ‘GREEN’ MOVIES AT HCC 4/14 AND 4/15

BRIDGEPORTHousatonic Community College will show two “green” movies nest week as part of its “Earthweeks 2009” observance.
     The movies, which are free and open to the public, are:

  • Car  of the Future, Tuesday, & Wednesday, April 14 and 15.  This Nova broadcast deals with that  distinctly American obsession, the car: Where do you turn in today's car  market? Is new technology about to transform the way we drive? Join Tom  Magliozzi and his brother Ray- better known as Click and Clack, the Tappet  brothers- as they take an intelligent, yet light-hearted look at America's four-wheeled  future. April 14 - 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. Room 287,  Beacon Hall; April 15 - 6:30 – 8:00  p.m., Event  Center, Beacon  Hall
  • Garbage Revolution, Tuesday &  Wednesday, April 14 & 15. This film follows the McDonald family of  Toronto,  Canada, as they  track their environmental impact through garbage for three months. All their  waste is accounted for during that time, even the kids’ lunchboxes. While the  topic is serious and the footage provides interesting statistics on how each  of us contributes to global warming, there are many humorous moments as well.  The director encourages the audience to join an online community on the film’s  web site to recount its own experiences, and to share videos, stories and  ideas for change, April 14 - 6:30 – 9:00 p.m., Event Center, Beacon Hall. April 15 - 12:00–  2:00 pm, Room 287, Beacon Hall.
HCC is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in Downtown Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 (Exit 27) and Rte. 8 (Exit 1), a block from the Arena at Harbor Yard.
