January 2007

World-renowned musician and human rights worker, Michael Franti, shares his travels to Iraq, Palestine and Israel in this wonderful documentary entitled, "I Know I'm Not Alone".
The Community Vegan Potluck Series was pleased to kick off the New Year potluck series with this film on Sunday, January 21st., for an appreciative audience of about 40 people.

Franti succeeds in appealing to a multigenerational audience with the soundtrack, visual and musical montages, and his intimate commentary. The film's guerilla style footage captured in active war zones, makes this documentary unlike the many academic and politically driven pieces provided by the mainstream media.
This film (available for loan now from the Potluck Series for small private showings) is an opportunity to hear the voices of everyday people living, creating and surviving under the harsh conditions of war and occupation. "I Know I'm Not Alone" is a tribute to the courage of the human heart, and an antidote to despair. Power to the Peaceful!
