IPMM “Wasteland” Screening : Report

Last weekend we hosted our 1st Film Screening and we’re happy to report that it was a huge success!  Being our first film event, we knew we had to select a great picture, and “Wasteland” didn’t disappoint.  The 30+ seat theater was filled, and additional folding chairs were set up to accommodate a great crowd.  If you haven’t seen the film, it’s available for instant view on Netflix, and if it moves you as much as it moved us, we encourage you to donate to the Pickers Union of Jardim Gramacho via WastelandMovie.com.

Due to the generous donations of the events attendees, we were able to raise $185 to send to Jardim Gramacho in support of the “catadores” on behalf of the IPMM Community!  As much as art is dedicated to aesthetics, we truly value when it’s able to make a difference in the world, and we’re happy to have facilitated more of that.

We’d love to thank CENTER PORTION for accepting our event proposal and for being such a great venue! Their garden, gallery, and theater “trifecta” is incredible.

We’d also like to thank Brittany Roque for taking these shots of the event!

Look for more IPMM Film Screenings in the future!!
