I just got an email update from Lyla Foggia about the current film she’s promoting – “Deep Green”. The documentary was written, produced, and directed by first-time filmmaker Matt Briggs. After years of witnessing the slow decline of Oregon’s forests, Matt decided to travel the world to find out what we are doing to solve the global warming issue. What he found was solutions to the problem, and the film is an informative detailing of the solutions we as individuals and as a society can enact immediately.
With Lyla’s help, word on the movie has gotten out and most of the local media has now covered the film. Here is the coverage from the Oregonian, Portland Business Journal, Portland Tribune, and SustainableBusinessOregon.com. All week the film will be playing at the Bagdad Theater and then the NW Film Center will be presenting it at the Whitsell Auditorium on July 1. Thanks to local animation company Bent Image Lab, there are not only engaging animation sequences in the film, but a few extras on “Deep Green’s” website. Be sure to check it out!
