This month's film: The Cove (2009)
Oscar winner for Best Documentary of 2009, THE COVE follows an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers as they embark on a covert mission to penetrate a remote and hidden cove in Taiji, Japan, shining a light on a dark and deadly secret. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras in fake rocks, the team uncovers how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of massive ecological crimes happening worldwide. The result is a provocative mix of investigative journalism, eco-adventure and arresting imagery, adding up to an unforgettable story that has inspired audiences worldwide to action.

Each month at this intimate, informal gathering at the hive, we show a film with a message — sometimes entertaining, sometimes political, always inspiring, engaging and thought provoking.
We start the evening with a kind of bring-your-own happy hour and then screen the film after dusk. We'll have healthy, organic popcorn. Please bring something to drink and other food to share if you like.
Open to the public — bring friends. Donations appreciated.
