"orgeous and even inspiring, a tale of loyalty hard-tested and
hard-earned, a sumptuous travelogue, and a reminder that some of the critters with whom we share the planet are, in ways, as complex in their feelings as any human being.”—The Portland Oregonian.


Wednesday, July 27 at 7pm

Screening followed by a discussion with director Deborah Koons Garcia Co-presented by Genetic Engineering Action Group

Not Rated * 1 hour 29 minutes * documentary

A revolution is taking place in the fields and on the dinner tables of America, but it is invisible to many of us. Genetically engineered foods are in about 60% of all processed foods, but no studies have been done to determine the long-term effects of these foods. THE FUTURE OF FOOD examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat.

Monday, August 1 at 7pm
* New England Premiere *

Screening followed by a discussion with director James Spione
Co-presented by Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation

AMERICAN FARM has played to sold out crowds in Saratoga Springs and at the Syracuse Int'l Film Festival. The screening at Images Cinema is the New England premiere!

Director: James Spione
Not Rated * 1 hour 30 minutes * documentary

AMERICAN FARM is an account of the Ames family farm in Richfield Springs, New York, but it is also an elegy for a vanishing way of life. Langdon Ames, a cousin of the director James Spione, is the
fifth son to own the dairy farm, and has been running the business since his early twenties. He is now in his late sixties, and no one in the next generation is willing to take over the farm.

"A distinctly American story about everyday people and their struggle to preserve the things they cherish. . . The result is not a film that languishes in nostalgic clichés, but rather thrills its
audience with its examination of real people involved in rich, complex relationships."-Pulse Magazine
