"A Small Good Thing" by Pamela Tanner Boll (2015, 71 min.) While the philosophy of “more is better” has been key to American economic success for the past 50 years, we now find ourselves backed into an isolated corner—where our devices, celebrity entertainment, dream homes and wealth aren’t making us any happier. "A Small Good Thing" explores how the American Dream has reached its end and how for most of us, greater material wealth and upward mobility are no longer possible. To find out what is taking its place, this feature documentary follows six people in one community who have recast their lives so they can live with a sense of meaning—more connected to themselves, the natural world, and the greater good.
Pamela Tanner Boll, an artist, filmmaker, writer, and activist, is the Director of Who Does She Think She Is?, a film about five artists who are mothers. She is the Co-Executive Producer of Academy Award-winning Born into Brothels, and the Executive Producer of eight documentaries: Connected, In a Dream,Our Summer in Tehran, Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields, Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors without Border, She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry, Close to the Fire, andE-Team.
Downtown Yoga Festival is a yoga event for the community to experience a healthy lifestyle, peace, and happiness through yoga. Together we will celebrate the healing effects of yoga with a variety of yoga classes, workshops, and seminars for all skill levels and ages. Come and experience a more healthy way of eating through raw, vegan, and Ayurvedic cooking classes, or simply enjoy a variety of our delicious food options. Let your inner bliss shine while dancing and enjoying the live music of our talented musicians. This festival will bring the community together in a celebration of life through a unique program incorporating experienced yoga instructors, musicians, chefs, and local businesses.
