No Friday EyeCandy last week, as I was up in Park City at the Sundance Film Festival covering it for Documentary Magazine. While I was there, I got covered myself...by Glamour! Margins is going to be featured in their April 2008 issue as part of their Green Guide (not official title).
Hopefully, I didn't sound like a complete idiot in the interview. The reporter didn't quite catch me at my best... runny nose + 7000 feet of altitude adjustment = a less than coherent Tamara. My body does NOT like the cold!
And speaking of Sundance...several docs up there dealt with environmental issues, and all shared the common themes of acting locally and beginning with small steps. Flow: For Love of Water dealt with the looming water crisis. I'm familiar with water pollution issues, but learned a lot about the effects of H20 privatization - it scared the crap of out me. In Fields of Fuel, activist Josh Tickell advocates the use of biodiesel fuel, and uses it as the jumping off point to explore our dependence on oil and to showcase current solutions. Trouble the Water, a personal account of surviving Katrina, and I.O.U.S.A., about the national debt, are not directly about the environment, but you can't help but connect the dots once they are put in context.
