Gaia Film Fest’s “Inconvenient Truth” of Transport

Via on Jun 24, 2008

Just finished helping out at the Gaia Film Festival, and it was an amazing way to spend a weekend. While there were some great films that played, what was probably the most important film of the weekend (and my personal favorite) has to be Fields of Fuel. I really think that Fields of Fuel has the possibility to do for transportation and the biofuels industry what An Inconvenient Truth did for climate change. It’s already won several film festival awards (including Audience Favorite at the Gaia Film Festival), and according to rumor, it’s up for an Academy Award. It’s due out on dvd in November, but keep an eye out for it in various cities in the meantime, and if you get a chance to see it, then do.

Alex has no intention to teach others on a formal basis for many years to come, instead, she is collecting qualifications along with life’s lessons. One day, when the time is right, Alex will set up a quaint studio, in a quirky crooked building where she will breathe and appreciate the slowness of those days as life is just way too busy right now! Reading and writing has always been one of Alex’s passions. Alex likes to consider herself as a free spirit rather than a commitment-phobe. Trying to live as aligned to a Buddhist lifestyle as is possible in this day and age, she just does not believe in "owning" anything or anyone. Based on the theory that we ‘cannot lose someone that was not ours to lose’ she flails through life finding joy and magic in the most unexpected places. Mother to a 21 year old daughter and three adorable pups, she appreciates that some of the best moments in life are the 6am forest walks watching the dogs run, play and interact with one another and with nature.
