Rachel Carson movie

The WAMM Movie Committee will be showing “Rachel Carson” on Monday, September 9 from 7 to 9 pm at 4200 Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

The woman who launched the environmental movement. When Silent Spring was published in September 1962 it became an instant bestseller and would go on to spark dramatic changes in the way the government regulated pesticides. Drawn from Carson’s own writings, letters and recent scholarship, the film illuminates both the public and private life of the soft-spoken, shy scientist who launched the modern environmental movement.

(2017, 1 hr, Directed by Michelle Farrari, USA)

Connecting the dots. . . A chance to discuss the film follows the showing.

Always FREE and open to the public.

Emma Goldman movie

The WAMM Movie Committee will be showing “Emma Goldman” on Monday, October 14 from 7 to 9 pm at 4200 Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

To the tabloids, she was “Red Emma, queen of the anarchists,” but Goldman was admired for her defense of labor rights, women's emancipation, birth control, and free speech. Goldman (1869―1940) was a life-long anarchist, feminist, activist, speaker and writer. For nearly half a century, Russian emigrant Emma Goldman was the most controversial woman in America, taunting the main-stream with her fervent attacks on government, big business, and war.

(2004, 1 hr, Directed by Mel Bucklin, USA)
