07:00 PM: Emery Blagdon and His Healing Machine

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:00:00 PDT

With pliers in hand, Nebraska artist Emery Blagdon fashioned pieces of wire into patterns and attached foil, beads, ribbons and an infinite array of everyday cast-off items. He hung the creations he called his "pretties" in his rural Nebraska shed, creating an environment he believed could generate natural energy from the earth and help people attain better health.
The stories of Blagdon, his "Healing Machine" and the two men responsible for preserving this great American art are told in this film. Local pharmacist Dan Dryden befriended the man with unkempt hair, a long beard and overalls when Blagdon visited the store to buy supplies. When Dryden visited his farm, he was astonished by Blagdon's creations.
When Blagdon died, his farmstead and the "Healing Machine" were up for auction. To keep his art from being separated or destroyed, Dryden and his friend Don Christensen purchased the "Healing Machine." His masterpiece is now on display at the John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and Emery Blagdon is known by art collectors and museum visitors as a man with boundless visionary creativity - an artist of great significance.

In the heart of the Antarctic Peninsula there's a post office surrounded by jaw-dropping scenery and 3,000 gentoo penguins.

We see their four-month drama unfold as cruise ships come and go, bringing tourists to buy postcards and photograph penguins -- the backdrop to the penguins' lives.

10:00 PM: Not Without Us

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 22:00:00 PDT

Not Without Us follows seven grassroots activists from around the world to the 21st U.N. Climate Talks in Paris. The effects of climate change on their lives reveal what's at stake if a strong agreement to limit carbon emissions is not reached. Yet, the landmark Paris Accords, signed by 195 nations, is non-binding and fails to mention the main cause of global climate change: fossil fuels. Not Without Us connects the dots between the inability of the U.N. process to address climate change and Big Oil's control over governments, between the economic inequality and the oncoming climate disaster, and between a fossil fuel driven economy and the 1% who control it. Not Without Us demonstrates the importance of grassroots groups to empower mass movements to create systemic change.
