The award-winning documentary feature, “So Right So Smart,” will be shown on this Sunday, April 29, at 3 p.m. in Stark Hall, 400 Winona Street, on the Winona State University campus, with on-street parking readily available nearby. This special Earth Day follow-up is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by Winona Climate Action Network (CAN).
Narrated by Daryl Hannah, this film makes the business case for sustainability, with examples from companies that have built successful business models around the core values of environmental stewardship. As the film’s tag line points out, “what’s good for the planet can also be good for the bottom line.” The film showcases the ingenuity of cutting edge companies that are “doing well by doing good.”
This film will be of interest to anyone looking for practical, real-world solutions to the multiple challenges our planet faces. The screening will be followed by a discussion with local “green” business leaders, including Jack Hedin of Featherstone Farms (sustainable agriculture) and Tim Gulden from Winona Renewable Resources (solar energy installations). John Howard, natural resources sustainability coordinator for the city of Winona, will also join in for the discussion.
“So Right, So Smart” has been an official selection of several film festivals, including the Atlanta Film Festival, the Starz Denver Film Festival, and the Ecofocus Film Festival.
Winona CAN is a grassroots organization that connects, educates and improves the quality of life for all, through promotion of clean energy initiatives and individual actions.
