I just wanted to let fellow bike commuters in the Tampa Bay area know that there will be a screening of Dear Mr. Gore: A Somewhat Cinematic Correspondence Awkwardly Tracing a Circular Journey Constructed on a Warming Planet at the Channelside Cinemas tomorrow (February 28th) at 2:00 PM. This screening is part of the Gasparilla International Film Festival.
Director/star Lisa Mills describes the movie as
An Orlando woman uses her bicycle ride to work as a vehicle to explore fear and global warming. Shot in Orlando, Tampa, Sweden and Denmark, the film is a contemplative response to An Inconvenient Truth and provides a unique perspective on one person’s attempt to reduce her carbon footprint and overcome fear. Her journey to the answer takes the audience on a humorous bike ride with a camera strapped to the handle bars. This film features a bicycle ride with the Mayor of Orlando and music by Danish jazz violin sensation Mads Tolling.
I’ve already given Ms. Mills grief about not starring ME…especially since some of the film was shot in my own commuting territory ;). In any case, if you can make it out there, Ms. Mills will be there to answer questions and show off her commuting bike prior to the screening.
