Filmmaker Josh Tickell is aiming for "a shift in human consciousness," with his film, Fields of Fuel. Focused on biodiesel and biofuels as alternatives to reliance on big oil and soy production, the film asks us to choose more self-reliant, peaceful, and healthier lives.
Currently making the festivals rounds, the documentary recently won the "Audience Award" at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Can Biofuels change the world? Decide for yourself at a special Bend screening, made possible by Bend Biodiesel Coop. Host Michael Macomber will introduce the film, which is yet to be released to the public.
Fields of Fuel 1.5 hrs (total program 2.5 hrs). April 20, 12pm, McMenamins Old Saint Francis, Bend. Suggested donation: $10.
