Wednesday, January 31: Mile... Mile and a Half
What can you accomplish in 25 days? "Walk" with these five friends who leave their daily lives behind to hike California’s historic John Muir Trail, a 211-mile stretch from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney (the highest peak in the contiguous U.S.). You'll witness the amazing sights & sounds they encounter along the way. Inspired by their bond, humor, artistry & dedication, the group continues to grow to include other artists, musicians & adventure seekers. Before they all reach the summit, hikers and viewers alike affirm the old adage — it’s about the journey, not the destination.
Wednesday, March 7: Edens Lost and Found...Chicago, City of the Big Shoulders
Chicago is a dynamic and fascinating city with spectacular architecture and a dramatic setting on the shores of Lake Michigan. The largest metropolis between the coasts, it has the biggest population, the most problems...and the greatest potential. The film weaves together the stories of a diverse group of its active and committed citizens including volunteers, professionals, students and community leaders -- among them, the city's then-mayor, Richard M. Daley. During his tenure, Chicago made a powerful commitment to open space with the creation of the 24-acre Millennium Park, and become a laboratory for green architecture with the award-winning City Hall Roof Garden and Green Roof Initiative. Together, their efforts helped reclaim pieces of Eden that had been lost to generations of apathy.
