The York University Alumni Association is hosting a free screening of York alumnus Andrew Nisker’s (BFA Spec. Hons. ’93) first feature-length documentary: Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home tomorrow, Nov. 27, at the Price Family Cinema. The screening starts at 7:30pm and runs until 9:30pm. Nisker will be at the screening to introduce his film and for a Q & A afterwards.
As the film’s writer and director, Nisker takes an average urban family, the McDonalds, and asks them to keep every scrap of garbage they create for three months. He then takes them on a journey to find out where the garbage goes and its impact on the world.
Those who attend tomorrow’s event will have a chance to win a DVD copy of Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home and other York alumni prizes. Winners will be announced at the end of the presentation and must be present to claim their prize.
This is a free public event and seating is limited, organizers ask that you register online to reserve your space. To learn more about this film, visit the Garbage Revolution Web site. Nisker and his film were also featured on the cover of YorkU magazine’s October 2008 issue
