God $ Green: An Unholy Alliance

God $ Green: An Unholy Alliance

Film Screening — Duration: 20 mins

This spunky, hard-hitting documentary from the Religion, Race, and Democracy Lab at the University of Virginia asks the question, “When did climate change go from a scientific metric to a political hot potato, and what does God have to do with it?” The film uncovers decades of religious polarization, political propaganda, racism and corporate deal-making while exploring the tension between science and religion. Influenced by oil money for decades, the evangelical movement has seemingly ditched the idea of creation stewardship to promote the idea that environmentalism is a threat to the Christian worldview.

The Big Scary "S" Word

The Big Scary “S” Word

Film Screening — Duration: 82 mins

Capitalism is synonymous with America. So is democracy. But as obscene wealth increases for those at the top, working people burdened by debt find it increasingly hard to make a living, raising the question of whether these two founding principles of our country can co-exist. The Big Scary “S” Word offers a history of socialist movements in America, from labor union strikes to the first municipally sponsored public housing project and debunks the outdated Cold War propaganda. The film follows a former Marine and a school teacher as they work to prove that working people helping to shape institutions for the betterment of all and holding those institutions accountable to the public is as American as apple pie.
