    HI,
    I’d like to suggest a film for a future event…
    The Condor and The Eagle – Ground Zero for Climate Justice
    info on fb page https://www.facebook.com/thecondorandtheeaglethefilm
    I would like to support the filmmakers and share it with those who have not seen it or may not know what is happening.

      HI Janice!
      The reason why no one saw this is because I monitor this and have not been able to comfortably post information when Black Lives Matter has been front and center. While I also monitor the Doc and Discussion Series media channel – others do too. But reccomendation for films should be posted on that website as there are a series of questions we ask that make pursuit of a film easier. So please answer the questions on the website by going to :
      https://ossiningdocumentaries.org/get-involved/make-a-screening-proposal/

      When it comes to enviro films, I usually curate them. ANother e=issue because I am strapped time-wise. But would be happy to give a look-see upon your submission.
      THANKS!
      Suzie
