A Small Good Thing opens at Boedecker October 11


Award-Winning Film ‘A Small Good Thing’ Coming to Boulder
Boulder resident and Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll explores these questions in her new documentary film, A Small Good Thing, screening at the Boedecker Theater at The Dairy Center for the Arts on Sunday, October 11, 2015.

The feature-length film, which recently won Best Documentary at the Boston International Film Festival, tells the stories of people moving away from the philosophy that “more is better.” It centers on a more holistic concept of well-being − one based on a close connection to themselves, the natural world, and to the greater good.
Produced by Mystic Artists, the film was shot on location in various communities throughout the Berkshires region of Massachusetts.  The film follows innovative farmer Sean Stanton, social work student Tim Durrin and yoga teacher Mark Gerow, whose earlier careers in the armed forces have now shifted to service of a different kind; Jen and Pete Salinetti, a college-educated couple with two small children who have chosen to be farmers as a way to connect with their community; and Shirley Edgerton, a community activist and founder of both the Youth Alive Step Team and the Women of Color Giving Circle.

The film is directed by Boll, who co-executive produced the Academy Award®-winning 2004 film Born into Brothels: Calcutta’s Red Light Kids.  With this new film, she partners with producers, and long-time associates, Paula Kirk and Kerthy Fix. Additionally, the film was edited by Boulder filmmaker T.C. Johnstone, who also directed the acclaimed 2012 film Rising From Ashes. Boll is an artist, filmmaker, writer, activist, and the Executive Producer of ten additional documentaries.
“A Small Good Thing does not pretend to have all the answers,” said Boll. “However, the film asks whether we can change our larger goals as a nation and learn from the rest of the world about the small truths that are the sources of human happiness. I’m so happy to be bringing the film to my adopted hometown of Boulder for these screenings.”
The film screens at 4:30 PM & 7:00 PM at the Boedecker Theater at the Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO 80302 on Sunday, October 11, 2015.

‘Christmastime’ filming begins Nov. 13 – Nov. 21 Boulder


christmastime 3HOLLYWOOD COMES TO BOULDER City of Boulder Welcomes the Filming of ‘Christmastime’
LOCATION: The City of Boulder is finalizing preparations for the filming of a movie, ‘Christmastime’ on and around the Pearl Street Mall. Filming will begin this Friday, Nov. 14 and continue through Friday, Nov. 21.

‘Christmastime,’ directed by Michael Landon, Jr., includes Ernie Hudson, Marley Shelton, and Christian Kane in the cast. The plot is focused around a couple who owns a business on the Pearl Street Mall and is visited by an angel during the holiday season. Approximately 150 residents from in and around Boulder will work as extras during the week of the filming.

STAGING AREA: The Municipal Center parking lot on Canyon Boulevard, just west of Broadway, will serve as the primary staging area for film crews from Thursday, Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. until Friday, Nov. 21 at 11:59 p.m. The Municipal Center parking lot will be closed to city employees and the public throughout this time period. The Library parking lot across the creek, accessible from Arapahoe Avenue, will remain open and available for public parking.

PLOT SUMMARY Echoing in the deepest depths of space, a humble prayer ascends: One from Maire Taylor, a smart, beautiful businesswoman who asks that her husband find the strength and wisdom to let go of their 9 year old marriage … While a second prayer simultaneously comes from Billy Taylor, a hopelessly romantic artist who asks that his wife receive the strength and wisdom to hold on. From these humble pleas, comes an answer in the form of a little miracle (an 8 year old runaway from heaven) who takes it upon herself to rekindle the once intimate friendship and romance that has slowly, but surely slipped away from Billy and Maire due to a heart-wrenching loss. Using all of her skill and charm (as well as some well-intentioned mischief!) our little 8 year old runaway comically sets out to heal their broken hearts and save their marriage by helping them get back to the basics of love.

Why We Need Art – A Presentation at Shine Nov. 19th, 2014


“Why We Need Art” is a presentation by artist Patrick Williams focusing on our collective relationship with Creativity. Each of us has a deep and original connection with Creativity. Often this authentic and imaginal bond has been “misplaced”. We are trained to think of Creativity as frivolous, a waste of time, and unessential. Through mishap and or aggression, which could have been an offhand comment or deliberate humiliation, we begin to mislay or seemingly lose our Creativity. Tossing it into a box in a closet in the basement of our inner psyche.

No matter how buried or forgotten we all have the embers of Creativity within us. This presentation is for everyone who desires and dares to access, maintain, and sustain their Creativity and will point people in the right direction toward rekindling our Creative embers and turning them into Creative flames.
