Transition Houston has long intended to have a Transition Film Series; unfortunately we are still not there.
But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a lot of great movies with messages relevant to our Transition journey being screened in Houston. For instance, the Emerging Green Builders Houston have been showing a number of highly relevant movies, and there are a couple more coming up. Soonish!
For instance, there is this free screening of the movie: Tapped!

Seats 50; RSVP at EGB.Screenings@gmail.com
From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A., this timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water.
From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.
And, on Tuesday of Earth Week, there is a free screening of No Impact Man

A movie about a guilty New York liberal who decides to practice what he preaches for one year. He turns off the electricity, stops making garbage, gives up TV, taxi’s and takeout and becomes a walking, bicycling, composting, tree hugging, polar bear saving, local food-eating citizen…all the while taking his baby daughter and caffeine loving, retail-obsessed, television addicted wife along with him.
