Cinema Verde Joins Green Halloween for Boo at the Zoo

Posted by Trish Riley, October 22, 2010

Cinema Verde will screen Lithium Springs, a film from one of our Environmental Film Festival directors at Green Halloween®, hosted by the USGBC Heart of Florida Chapter in collaboration with the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo’s “Boo at the Zoo” event on Sunday, Oct. 31, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, 3000 N.W. 83 St.

This family-friendly event will showcase a wide variety of organizations and companies committed to sustainable living. There will be educational opportunities for everyone, along with games and prizes for children of all ages.

Cinema Verde will be presenting the film Lithium Springs, directed by Carter Lord of St. Augustine, who also directed The Phosphate Dilemma, which was featured in the First Annual Gainesville Environmental Film and Arts Festival in March 2010. Lithium Springs is about a treasure hunter (Lord) and his dog, Fred the Daschund, who encounter a band of wood sprites and challenges as they explore the rivers, springs and swamps of Central Florida in search of treasure.

“A whimsical, campy, amusing, heartfelt movie that has endeared itself to audiences from 5 to 85. It would be especially fun for young children.” – Ted Baehr, Movie Guide.

Green Halloween® is a non-profit community initiative to create healthier and more Earth-friendly holidays, beginning with Halloween.
