This Sunday Whole Foods Presents the Do Something Reel Film Festival

Spend your Sunday taking in some of the past few years best films at the World Live Café. Philadelphia’s South Street Whole Foods presents the Do Something Reel™ Film Festival.

These films are bound to inspire and educate. Here’s the lineup:
Sunday, April 17, 10:30am: LUNCH LINE (2010, 60 minutes) This deeply affecting film follows six kids from one of the toughest neighborhoods in Chicago as they set out to fix school lunch — and wound up at the White House. Their unlikely journey parallels the dramatic transformation of school lunch from a patchwork of local anti-hunger efforts to a robust national feeding program.

Sunday, April 17, Noon: ON COAL RIVER (2010, 80 minutes) A compelling and transcendent narrative on the human costs of coal and strip-mining, this provocative film follows the journey of a former coal miner and his neighbors. Unfolding as a modern-day David vs. Goliath tale, the residents of the Coal River Valley in West Virginia transform from so-called victims to fearless and informed experts on mountaintop removal.

Sunday, April 17th, 2:30pm: THE VANISHING OF THE BEES (2009, 90 minutes) Narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page, this cautionary tale reveals the mystery of the disappearing bees, and the links to industrial farming and our attitude toward the natural world. Starring in this real-life drama is a commercial bee farmer who rang the alarm bell when his bee colonies collapsed and his business was decimated.
