The Sustainability Department will host a showing of the movie
“Freedom” at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3, in room BE5 of the Memorial Student Center.
Elizabeth Rutherford, the recycling coordinator, said that a question-and-answer session will follow at which three signed copies of the DVD of the movie will be handed out to audience members.
“Freedom,” which was produced by the filmmakers of the Sundance award-winner “Fuel,” is about a couple who investigate alternatives to fossil fuels in response to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. According to the promoters of the film, it offers an array of green solutions for transportation, such as cellulosic ethanol, plug-in hybrids and other sustainable technologies. It includes interviews with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former NATO Commander Wesley Clark, singer/songwriter Jason Mraz, author Deepak Chopra and actors Michelle Rodriguez, Amy Smart and Ed Begley Jr.
In addition to the screening of the movie, the Huntington campus also will host the Freedom Bus Oct. 3. The bus is traveling to movie theaters and colleges and universities in support of the release of the movie. Tours of the Freedom Bus, which has 18 solar panels, a biofuel engine, and on-demand green energy videos, will begin at 10:30 a.m. and continue until 3:30 p.m. at the bookstore loading dock at the Memorial Student Center.
