For those of you in the Washington, DC area remember to check out the D.C. Environmental Film Festival starting this weekend. The dates are Thursday, March 10, 2005 to Sunday, March 20, 2005. The festival will feature 108 documentary films about the environment. Two of the titles that caught my attention are Terminator Tomatoes, a film shot with a 35mm camera. This film features animation puppets and miniature sets. Genetically modified seeds and produce are taken to task in this adorable sounding film. Garlic Is As Good As Ten Mothers was produced in 1980. I know I have seen this one a few times. The film covers a lot of history about garlic, garlic trivia and a stop at the Gilroy (CA)Garlic Festival. (Gilroy, CA. is the Garlic Capitol of the World).
These films are shown at different venues throughout the DC area.
