Life is Good; AA at Porc Fest
—————–
When: Sat, 9:00A _(60m)
Organizer: Mark Hansen, Organizer: Mark Hansen, Mark has been sober for over 6 years. He realized that alcohol was becoming a problem in his life, and didn’t want to be remembered as being an alcoholic. He didn’t want his children to remember him that way, and he didn’t want to die from it. As a former park ranger and current security officer at a hospital, he has seen his fair share of what alcohol addiction can do to a person. He has witnessed people going through detox. He has seen the physical and psychological effects of it, and he has seen people die from alcoholism and drug overdose. He didn’t want that inanimate object (alcohol) to win over his life, so he decided to be a warrior and a soldier to defeat it. Be a warrior. Life is Good!
For Whom: For Whom: For anybody who is sober or trying to stay sober during the week, and for anybody who might be having a difficult time with substances and trying to stop. Is alcohol or other substances becoming overwhelming, consuming, or taking over your life? Habits can become addictions for some people, and when it becomes a problem, it may be time to stop. When your body gets used to having foreign substances in it every day (such as alcohol), it may be physiologically very difficult to stop or change the habit/addiction. I’ve found it more helpful to talk with others who have actually gone through it, than to talk with counselors who haven’t. —Mark

Description: “I’m from the Government…. and I’m Here to Ruin your Life.” Saturday’s films are about lives destroyed through eminent domain, civil asset forfeiture, and bad government policy. See the complete Saturday schedule in the Note below. {More}
Where: Anth: Anthem Theater, OfficeBld
Note: SATURDAY “I’m from the Government— and I’m Here to Ruin your Life”
. . . 4:00 pm “Little Pink House,” Courtney Balaker, dir. (99 min.) Grand Prize Winner 2017! Catherine Keener and Jeanne Tripplehorn led a remarkable cast under Balaker’s able direction. It tells the true story of Susette Kelo (Keener), a shy small-town nurse who fought Big Pharma and even bigger government all the way to the Supreme Court when her entire neighborhood was confiscated under eminent domain. Deadline Hollywood said of the film, Keener nails the combination of anger, grace and attitude that made Kelo a nationally known crusader against eminent domain abuse.
. . . 5:40 pm Discussion: “RICO, Civil Asset Forfeiture, and Eminent Domain: When the ‘Greater Good’ Isn’t”
. . . 6:00 pm “Seized,” Matthew and Thomas Locastro, dirs. (25 min.) A young man’s college career is destroyed when, while driving away from the bank after cashing his tax refund check, police accuse him of having acquired the money illegally. Under civil asset forfeiture laws, the police were able to confiscate the money, without trial or conviction. These onerous CAF statutes have become a source of revenue enhancement for police departments around the country. Because of this Emmy-winning short documentary, many of those laws have been changed.
. . . 6:30 pm “The Falconer,” Ian Reid, dir. (5 min) For Peter, the bond with his falcon, Ares, is as powerful as anyone’s bond with a pet, perhaps more powerful. The commitment it takes to earn the trust of a wild bird instills a special relationship between animal and man. But in order to keep their licenses, falconers must allow unannounced, unwarranted searches of their private homes – in direct contradiction of the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unlawful search and seizure. When Peter’s best friend was detained by armed Fish and Wildlife agents in a surprise raid, he decided enough was enough. With PLF’s support, Peter is suing to get falconers’ rights back.
. . . 6:40 pm “Seize this House,” Keith Wahrer, dir. (6 min.) Comedy. SEIZE THIS HOUSE is an HGTV-inspired satire about two bureaucrats who flip homes and make big money…for their local government. They find homeowners behind on their property taxes (even for amounts as low as $8), kick them out, then sell the homes at auction. The profits (aka the homeowner’s life savings) all go to the county coffers. What a silly idea. There’s no way something like this could actually happen…
. . . 7:00 pm “The Housing Bubble,” Jimmy Morrison, dir. (79 min.) The Bubble came out at a crucial time in American history: America needs a simple economics lesson on the coming crash. Tom Woods wrote a NY Times bestseller on the housing crash and now he has teamed up with experts such as Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, David Stockman, and Doug Casey to reveal where these financial bubbles keep coming from. The Bubble features interviews with those who actually predicted the housing crisis and recession. Austrian economists have predicted every major US crash in the last century, and they are the only ones with the insight necessary to bring us out of this economic slide. This film asks them why this crisis happened, but more importantly, why do they think the next one will be a lot worse.
. . . 9:00 pm Mondo Hollywoodland,” Janek Ambros, dir. (90 min.) Move over, Rocky Horror Picture Show—there’s a new midnight movie cult classic for the 21st Century (filmed on a high-def smart phone, no less). Mondo is a meditation on Hollywood, power, ambition and free will. Are we condemned to put up with rats in the attic and the slings and arrows of cosmic fate? Or can we, with a little help from our friends (and a few magic mushrooms) stand up against the manipulative forces of evil (in the guise of Nixon and Trump Svengali Roger Stone), take back our lives, and find our missing cat?

The Housing Bubble (Anthem)
—————–
When: Sat, 7:00P _(90m)
Moderator: Jimmy Morrison, Director of the film and Moderator of the panel to follow.
For Whom: Those who enjoy documentaries and want to know more about how government policy affects inflation, interest rates, and financial bubbles.
Description: This is a crucial time in American history. America needs a simple economics lesson on the crash of 2008 and the coming inflationary crash. Tom Woods, who wrote a NY Times bestseller on the housing crash, has teamed up with experts such as Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, David Stockman, and Doug Casey to reveal where these financial bubbles keep coming from. Austrian economists have predicted every major US crash in the last century, and they are the only ones with the insight necessary to bring us out of this economic slide. This film asks them why this crisis happened, but more importantly, why they think the next one will be a lot worse. {More}
