Watch Something Green

The end of September may have you dreaming of the bright colors of fall, but for the last two weeks the Athena Cinema has been thinking green.  From Sept. 7-20, the Athena Cinema hosted a mini-festival of films about sustainability.  The series consisted of new documentaries on topics from conspicuous consumption to global warming, including “The Queen of Versailles,” “Last Call at the Oasis,” “The Island President,” and “Death by China.”

Even though the Athena Cinema’s first mini-festival is coming to a close, you can still explore the topic of sustainability through the assortment of films available in the Alden Library’s media collection.  

Our new Pinterest board of films about sustainability issues is an easy way to browse our collection. The covers link back to the film record in ALICE. 

You can also do a title, author, keyword, or subject video search in ALICE (see how in this video) if you already know the movie you want to find.

With over 50 feature films and documentaries covering everything from clean water, to fair trade, to vanishing bees, you’re sure to find one that piques your interest. The Athena will be hosting future mini-festivals throughout the year, on a variety topics, so keep your eye out for future Pinboards and blog posts about related films at the library.
