We'll have drinks and popcorn but feel free to bring snacks or any food you'd like to share. The screening will be in the backyard of the LEAN house:

Directed by Josh Tickell; Starring Peter Fonda, Jason Mraz, and Amy Smart
On April 22, 2010 the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig run by BP sunk into the Gulf of Mexico creating the worst oil spill in history. Until the oil well was killed on September 19, 779,037,744 liters of crude oil and over 7,000,000 liters of chemical dispersant spread into the sea.
By exposing the root causes of the spill filmmakers Josh and Rebecca Tickell uncover a vast network of corruption.
The Big Fix is a damning indictment of a system of government led by a powerful and secretive oligarchy that puts the pursuit of profit over all other human and environmental needs.
