#SalemOR Progressive Film Series: “At the Fork” – Tues. Oct. 17th


Tuesday, October 17th

Grand Theatre | 191 High Street NE, Salem, Ore.

Filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, together with his vegetarian wife Lisa, offer up a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption.

With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, Papola asks the tough questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk and baby-back rib. What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America’s farmers — real people who, along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for food.

copypasteimage-8Guest speaker: Kendra Kimbirauskas, CEO Socially Responsible Agricultural Project

Kendra grew up on a pasture-based dairy farm in the Midwest. After earning her degrees from Michigan State University, she became a community organizer for the Sierra Club, helping communities threatened by factory farms. Kendra’s community organizing work took her to rural communities in Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota before she moved to Oregon in 2003.

Movie: Warren Miller’s “Line of Descent” at Historic Elsinore Theatre in #SalemOR – Sun. Oct. 15th

Warren Miller’s Line of Descent

Sunday, October 15, 2017 | 7:00PM

Historic Elsinore Theatre, Salem

Travel the globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind us. Visit skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised the next generation of winter adventurers. Go from New Zealand, home to some of the Southern Hemisphere’s deepest lines, to the French Alps, where native son Jean Claude Killy’s legacy fills Val-D’Isere hearts with pride.

In Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in British Columbia, the Provo brothers discover the powsurfing stashes of Mustang Powder Lodge. Cruise through the Northern Rockies with Kalen Thorien by motorcycle and rip the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole with legends like Tommy Moe and Jess McMillan.

For 68 years, ski families have cheered on the official kickoff to winter with the ski film company that started it all and this year is no different. As the family grows, the traditions grow richer in Volkswagen presents Warren Miller’s Line of Descent. Deeper and fresher than ever.
