Eternal Amazon Film Event

Once again, the RPCVs of Colorado are an official community partner of the Starz Denver Film Festival!

This year, we have chosen to partner on screening Belisario Franco's haunting documentary "Eternal Amazon".

 At a time when the world is focused on the impact of humans on the environment, Eternal Amazon is a lyrical, poetic documentary that presents a critical analysis of how the world's largest tropical rainforest is understood and utilized. Exploring the Amazon's five million square kilometers - which are home to countless plant and animal species, and 20% of the world's freshwater reserves - the film asks whether it is possible for humans to make sustainable use of the rainforest. Executives, politicians and environmentalists working together with indigenous tribes and riverbank communities are currently constructing a model for using nature that can extract its resources while generating work and income, with minimal environmental impact.   

Tickets for this event are $20, which includes a movie ticket and a post-screening reception that includes hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer. You may pick up tickets in the lobby of the film center beginning an hour before the screening. Please find the RPCVCO table.

You can watch a trailer for this film here http://youtu.be/wUImSHBi0ik

If you've been to a meeting or event in the last couple of months, you know that we have been hinting at a very special event that we have been planning. We are so excited to announce that the RPCVs of Colorado have partnered with Swallow Hill Music to bring Daniel Martin Moore to Colorado on September 28th! Daniel is not only a respected singer/songwriter but is also an RPCV who served in Cameroon!

Thanks to the generous donations and support from you, our members, we have been able to fund a Peace Corps Partnership this summer!

By providing the local community library with a set of one hundred age-appropriate picture books (primarily in French but also in local languages) and basic preschool materials, this project aims to provide young children with improved learning opportunities to develop their reading and critical thinking skills before entering the formal school system.
