Q&A after the film

Humboldt Citizens for Clean Energy is proud to host a screening of the documentary Burned: Are Trees the New Coal? The film will be followed by a question and answer discussion with filmmakers Alan Dater and Lisa Merton.

Burned takes a hard look at the latest false solution to climate change: woody biomass. It reveals how biomass has become the alternative-energy savior for the power-generation industry. The film is a visceral account of the accelerating destruction of our forests for fuel. Using interviews with experts, activists, and citizens, along with vérité-style footage shot across the US and Europe, the film probes the policy loopholes, huge subsidies, and blatant greenwashing of the burgeoning biomass power industry. Woven together, the various elements present an intimate and compelling account of what is at this moment in time a critical, yet somewhat unknown, national and international controversy.
And it’s a controversy with particular relevance for Humboldt County. Nearly a quarter of the RCEA’s Community Choice Energy mix — and the vast majority of its locally-produced “renewable” energy — comes from biomass, at a premium cost for ratepayers. The RCEA has made it clear that even if we eventually have offshore wind, biomass will always be a key component of their “renewable” energy mix.

Burned: Are Trees the New Coal? is currently only being shown at film festivals and special screenings internationally, where it has been receiving rave reviews and critical acclaim. In 2017, it won the Audience Choice Award at the American Conservation Film Festival. The committee stated, “This film elicited a powerful and passionate response from our audience this year, with many saying they had no idea about this issue and its devastating impacts.” Alan Dater has previously worked on Emmy Award-winning productions for major U.S. television networks and National Geographic Specials. He and Lisa Merton have been making films together since 1989. Dater and Merton have co-directed and co-produced several award-winning documentaries, and their films have been shown on PBS.

A donation of $5 is suggested, but not required, for admission. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. For more information about the documentary visit burnedthemovie.com. This is a rare opportunity not to be missed!

Fishermen from the two islands provide solutions and inspire others to take simple actions at the individual level to make a difference.

El Mar, Mi Alma

Shot entirely on 16mm, ‘El Mar, Mi Alma’ is a visual love song to the surf blessed land of Chile, its people, and the ocean that defines it. With a long and diverse coastline Chile is a country not only shaped by its geography; the sea occupies a mystical and poetic, conscious and unconscious place within the cultural fabric of the nation. The film is a visual tone poem, a blend of images and music featuring cinematic surfing sequences, coastal landscapes, insightful commentary and poetry, and the movements of the cast on a unique surfing journey. With environmental themes and political undercurrent, the film paints a picture of Chile’s beauty and association with the sea, centred around the intimate act of surfing

The Fisherman’s Son

Born and raised at Punta de Lobos, Ramón Navarro found his passion riding the biggest waves on the planet. But his accomplishments in giant surf are just one part of a bigger vision to protect the culture and environment of the Chilean coast.

From visionary anime auteur Masaaki Yuasa comes a joyously hallucinogenic, but family-friendly take on the classic fairy tale about a little mermaid who comes ashore to join a middle-school rock band and propel them to fame. Kai is talented but adrift, spending his days sulking in a small fishing village after his family moves from Tokyo. His only joy is uploading songs he writes to the internet. When his classmates invite him to play keyboard in their band, their practice sessions bring an unexpected guest: Lu, a young mermaid whose fins turn to feet when she hears the beats, and whose singing causes humans to compulsively dance – whether they want to or not.

Pigs on the Wing – A Tribute to Pink Floyd

Portland, Oregon based Pink Floyd tribute Pigs on the Wing announces the band’s 2018 production, ‘Finding the Dark Side of the Moon’ a 2 set retrospective live experience culminating in a full performance of Pink Floyd’s 1973 concept album The Dark Side of the Moon.

Tracing its roots to a one-off performance in Portland in 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily developed a reputation for delivering a high quality, high energy take on Pink Floyd’s music steeped in the NW’s own rich
musical heritage. All of the members of the band are seasoned veterans of the original rock scene and balance a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and importance of Pink Floyd in many fans’ lives. The result is a sound and experience both refreshing in delivery and yet true to the original -something the band believes sets it apart from other Pink Floyd tributes.

Finding the Dark Side of the Moon:
After immersing themselves in the polished rock theatrics of The Wall during the 2017 season the band felt it was time to try something different. Pigs on the Wing’s 2018 production – Finding the Dark Side of the Moon’, represents a full circle in some ways. As the band’s 2 remaining original members Matt Jones and Jason Baker relate, Pigs on the Wing’s very first show was a performance of The Dark Side of the Moon. In the ensuing 11 years, the band’s regional fanbase has grown exponentially alongside the band themselves as musicians, as well as the scale of the show as an immersive audio-visual experience. This time around expect 2 full sets of Pink Floyd the first a loosely chronological retrospective of Pink Floyd’s work before becoming a household name; and the second a full performance of what many would agree is amongst rock music’s finest works from cover to cover, The Dark Side of the Moon.

Eric Welder (bass, vocals); Pete Galluzzo (sax); David Lindenbaum (guitar, vocals); Matt Jones (keys, vocals); Bryan Fairfield (drums); Keeley St. Clair (vocals, acoustic guitar); Jason Baker (guitar, vocals)
