Meaningful Movies in Gig Harbor
Friday | 8/10/2018 | 6:00 PM
Agnus Dei Lutheran Church
10511 Peacock Hill Ave NW
Gig Harbor, WA

"What the Health" exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars and keeping us sick. The film is a surprising, and at times hilarious, investigative documentary that will be an eye-opener for everyone concerned about our nation’s health and how big business influences it.

Leave it to Beavers

Wedgwood Meaningful Movies
Friday | 8/10/2018 | 7:00 PM
Our Lady of the Lake Church
8900 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA

Climate chaos is increasing. Summers with dry creeks, wildfires, famines, fish die-outs… What do we do? Leave it to beavers? This movie is a fascinating tale (tail?) of beavers in North America – their history, their near extinction, and their current comeback. A growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists regard beavers as overlooked tools when it comes to …

A Plastic Ocean

Everett Meaningful Movies
Saturday | 8/11/2018 | 6:30 PM
Our Savior's Lutheran Church
215 Mukilteo Blvd, Everett, WA

"A Plastic Ocean" is a stunning scientific documentary that tells the story of how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us. The film also offers hopeful ideas, based on new technology …

Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave
Port Townsend, WA

It's a story we know all too well in Washington State, and on the Olympic Peninsula in particular: Affordable housing is under constant threat from changing economic forces and urban development that break up vital communities.

Miss Representation

Miss Representation

Meaningful Movies at Cascade Park
Thursday | 8/16/2018 | 5:30 PM
Cascade Park Library
600 NE 136th Ave, Vancouver, WA

"Miss Representation" exposes how mainstream media and culture contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film draws back a curtain to reveal a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see – how the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls makes it difficult for women to …

An inspiring documentary about a former Catholic priest who challenges the political establishment in the Wild West state of Wyoming. Charlie Hardy is 75 years old and has no money or political experience. But none of that dissuades this 21st century Don Quixote from running for the US Senate while taking a stand against money in politics. Screening Followed By …
