Rock and Reel 4 the Sea

November 16, 2017

Come Join Filmmaker Linda Booker and the Wolfpack Environmental Students Association for a fun night of film and music at Deep South in downtown Raleigh! Booker's new documentary film Straws (32 min) will play at 7:30pm. After the film Frank's Garage plays live rock and blues to get you on the dance floor. Meet Straws Director Linda Booker and Amy Brooks of Brooks Contractor who will give a talk about plastic and compost. Straws is an award-winning short documentary seen in over 20 film festivals in six countries since its April premiere. Used once and tossed, billions of plastic straws wind up in landfills and streets finding their way to oceans. Actor/Director Tim Robbins narrates the history and story of Straws, and marine researchers, citizen activists and business owners discuss how it's possible to make a sea of change, one straw at a time. A film trailer and more can be found at the event website. "A small spark to a much larger agenda of keeping our planet clean... a perfect blend of educational and entertaining." -SilverScreen Analysis
