DocuClub in August: Wednesday, August 20, 2008, 7 p.m.

About DocuClub
DocuClub is Arts Engine’s monthly film screening series of works-in-progress documentaries. For more info, please go to: www.docuclub.org.

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday, August 20, at 7 p.m., at Goldcrest Post (799 Washington Street, between Horatio and Gansevoort), in New York City’s West Village. Our moderator will be Melissa Fowler, Founder and Director of the Reel Venus Film Festival.

Please join us as we screen "Good Fortune" by Landon Van Soest. The documentary explores how massive, international efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa may be undermining the very communities they are aimed at benefiting. The film presents portraits of three individuals targeted by multi-million dollar aid projects, who say the projects are threatening to destroy their homes and livelihoods. Contrasted with well-intentioned humanitarians working against the odds to stimulate positive change, "Good Fortune" presents a unique perspective on the struggle to overcome world poverty.

Landon Van Soest is director/producer of "Good Fortune." His previous film, "Walking the Line," is an award-winning feature documentary about “vigilantes on the U.S.-Mexico border” that has been lauded for advocating human rights. In 2005, he founded Transient Pictures with partner Jeremy Levine. He is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship and received the award for Socially Conscious Documentary at the 2007 IFP Market.

Producer/editor Jeremy Levine co-directed and produced "Walking The Line" with Van Soest, and recently worked as an editor on "Everything’s Cool" by Judith Helfand and Daniel B. Gold. His work has screened in dozens of film festivals around the world and broadcast nationally in six countries. Levine is currently developing the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective, a non-profit organization that provides support to independent filmmakers in New York City.

Van Soest and Levine recently returned from work-shopping "Good Fortune" at the Sundance Institute’s Documentary Composing and Story Labs. In addition, "Good Fortune" is a fiscally-sponsored project of Arts Engine.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to: docuclub@artsengine.net.

Admission is free to current DocuClub members and $5 for non-members.

Membership is an annual $40, which includes free admission to all DocuClub events. To join or renew, please go to:

just saw the rough cut for GOOD FORTUNE at the Sundance Labs – it was absolutely incredible. definitely worth seeing, either as a work-in-progress or whenever it's finished...

Greetings all!
I'm involved with a 501c3 based in Virginia that generates school supplies and teacher funds for two orphanages in Liberia. It's a small organization, and has done some amazing work. After 5 years, the organizations board of directors are making the 14 hour trip to Liberia in January to finally get on the ground, assess the needs of the children and the orphanages, and come back to the states with some clearer ideas on how to improve the conditions for the children.

We're hoping to document the trip, and upon departure from Liberia, leave the video camera with the orphanage for educational purposes, and teach the children some of the basics of video production, etc. I know most of the folks here are incredibly resourceful, and I thought I'd let everyone know what we're doing! If you're interested in helping out, or have some advice or any kind of direction you could point me in, you can contact me offline! In the meantime, feel free to check out the website of this great group! http://www.loeproject.org/

Yeah, the rough cut of GOOD FORTUNE I saw is the same one you saw at the Sundance Labs, Christopher. For next week's screening at DocuClub, we are showing a cut that is shorter than what you saw, but that incorporates some of the feedback from the labs. Feel free to check our "Talk Back" (www.docuclub.org) section after the screening, for a recap of the screening/post screening feedback session.

Sorry, juts seen your post. Apart from the 3 months (Jan – March) post election violence, which rocked some parts of the country, everything is pretty much back to normal. So normal that Roger Moore and Dean Cain just landed into the country. Sending a former JaMes bond and a former Superman....

Internship in Outreach for New Environmental Documentary

The Subject
You already know about climate change. But did you know climate change affects the ocean? Some of the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is dissolving into seawater. It's changing the pH, making seawater more acidic; some say "corrosive." This water actually dissolves the shells of certain shellfish—clams and oysters, for example, as well as tiny plankton—and coral reefs. The effects are working their way up the food chain. Imagine a world without fish: it's a distinct possibility.

A Sea Change is the first documentary about this effect, known as ocean acidification. The film combines hard scientific information-—we interview internationally known scientists—with the personal story of a family of fishermen. With Sven Huseby, retired educator and concerned grandparent, we travel from Norway to Northwestern America, learning about the scientific, economic, and cultural implications of ocean acidification. Target completion date: December 2008.

This is the third film by director Barbara Ettinger of Niijii Films. Her work has screened at Sundance and been broadcast on PBS.

Internship Details
The focus would be web-based: researching ocean acidification, contributing to our blog, driving traffic to and creating content in our various social networks. You'd need access to a computer of your own and work mostly virtually, with face meetings bi-weekly: our key crew members are based in Brooklyn, Germantown, and Philadelphia.

The possibility for non-virtual activities will emerge, as we develop partnerships with local organizations in connection with a number of 2009 events.

This internship is for you if you like to do research, to write, are interested in environmental issues and filmmaking, especially distribution, and are comfortable in the web 2.0 world and able to work independently.

Check out our website to learn more about the doc: http://aseachange.net.

This is a volunteer position, open to current students and anyone interested in working with us.

If this sounds appealing or you'd like more information, please contact angela*at*aseachange dot net.
