'Cascadia' is a film that speaks to the heart about ecological healing and a bioregional vision for the Pacific Northwest, the layers of dominant culture, and the need to "heal" the landbase and relationships of the bioregion through participation and cooperation. If you are interested in learning more about 'Cascadia' and the content to be explored through the film, the following link will take you to the 'Cascadia' trailer (~10 minutes in length; the content as well as the score and cinematography are phenomenal!): http://vimeo.com/couchmode/cascadia/videos/sort:date/38078416 http://vimeo.com/55819924# (59 min.movie) local screenings: May 1, Wednesday, 7 pm Macalester College, Campus Center, Lower Level 1600 Grand Avenue, St. Paul (SW Corner of Snelling Avenue and Grand Avenue) May 4, Saturday, 7 pm Minnehaha Free Space 3747 Minnehaha Ave. Minneapolis (Sponsored by MARS) May 7, Tuesday, 7 pm U of MN, Blegan Hall, rm 215 269 19th Avenue S, Minneapolis (Sponsored by SDS) ‘Occupied Cascadia’ is a documentary film exploring the evolving concept of bioregionalism across this land base. Historically, the diverse voices throughout this land have paved the way for many movements. We feel we have captured an essence of this evolving culture. So, what defines the people of this region? With resource wars upon us, governments are more oppressive than ever, global economies are destabilizing, corporations and media are continually dividing us and most seem to have some notion of an imminent collapse on the horizon. Are we capable of coming together, and if so, where do our commonalities lie? The people of Cascadia are diverse in opinions, stories and backgrounds and much like the larger nations we are a part of, we are divided by fundamentalism. What changes must we really make in order to provide for future generations, including the natural world? Explore these concepts and more. --------4 of x-------- Sand/frac/film 5.01 7pm Join Us for a Minneapolis Screening of the Frac Sand Documentary 'The Price of Sand' Post-Film Panel Discusion to Include Action You can Take to Help Pass Legislation to Protect Minn.

Original poems and stories read/performed by their creators: Margaret Hasse Freya Manfred Diego Vazquez Greg Watson Margaret Hasse grew up in Vermillion, South Dakota, and traveled west to college at Stanford University where she received a B.A. in English. Returned to the Midwest, she received an M.A. from the University of Minnesota, also in English. Her work has appeared in many publications and received poetry grants and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Loft-McKnight (twice), Jerome Foundation, and Minnesota State Arts Board (twice). Her fourth collection of poetry, Earth's Appetite, will be published in 2013. The next writing workshop she teaches is called "Writing about Our Mothers," which takes place the day before Mother's Day, at the Loft Literary Center. Freya Manfred's sixth collection of poetry, Swimming With A Hundred Year Old Snapping Turtle, www.reddragonflypress.com., won the 2009 Midwest Bookseller’s Choice Award for Poetry. Her seventh publication from Red Dragonfly is The Blue Dress, a chapbook. A longtime Midwesterner who has also lived on both coasts, her poetry has appeared in over 100 reviews and magazines and over 30 anthologies. Her memoir, Frederick Manfred: A Daughter Remembers, was nominated for a Minnesota Book Award and an Iowa Historical Society Award. Novelist Philip Roth says, “Freya Manfred always startles me by how close she gets to everything she sees. That’s her tough luck, but it makes her a wonderful poet.” Poet Robert Bly says, “What I like in (her) poems is that they are not floating around in the air or the intellect. The body takes them in. They are brave. The reader and the writer meet each other in the body.” Freya lives half an hour west of the Twin Cities in Wisconsin, with the screenwriter, Thomas Pope. Their visual artist sons, Ethan Rowan Pope and Nicholas Bly Pope, have illustrated some of the volumes of her poetry. Poet and novelist, Diego Vazquez Jr, is proud that his lineage connects people who did not fear crossing invisible lines. They are commonly called illegals. Yet Vazquez has never met an illegal human. Greg Watson's work has appeared in numerous literary reviews, and has been featured on Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac. His most recent collections are The Distance Between Two Hands and What Music Remains, published by Nodin Press. Before and after: The Blue Moon, downstairs, has coffee, sandwiches, desserts. Merlin’s Rest, a bar/restaurant 3 blocks west, has a full bar, good food, a late hours kitchen, some outside seating For further information: David Shove shove001 [at] umn.edu 651-636-5672 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shove Clove
