Youth Power: Red is Green Environmental Film Festival

You are cordially invited to attend ….Help the Earth
An Environmental Youth Empowerment non-prophet Organization
Specializing in Environment Youth Empowerment
Please join Montano Rain (Founder of Help the Earth)
Faced with global warming, nuclear meltdowns, and soaring gas prices, the public needs environmental- and energy-related information more than ever. In response, the Red is Green Movement presents the 1st Help the Earth Environmental Film Festival. Montano Rain promises an informative and entertaining day for everyone.
The festival will screen a series of award-winning documentaries for Earth Day week-end on April 23, 2011.
Montano Rain is 17 years old and has made a true and dedicated commitment to restoring the earth, educating youth and adults on the environment, and empowering the hearts and minds of the human spirit. He is studying to become an environmental engineer and an environmental lawyer.
Our guests are Casey Coates Danson of “Who’s Got the Power?” Also, Joanelle Romero “Founder of Red Nation Celebration/Red is Green Movement" producers from “Carbon Nation," Montano Rain of “Matrix Reloaded” and youth activist. Also, Sage Galesi of Steven Spielberg’s “Into the West” and “Dreamkeeper," including other  filmmakers and celebrity guests.
The films to be screened include ‘Who's Got The Power?’, ‘Flow’ ‘Carbon
Nation’ and ‘Fuel’. They present a powerful indictment of our energy and
environmental policies and suggest the need for a radical shift in our
thinking. If we don't heed the warnings from Mother Earth, these films
tell us, we're doomed to more disasters and hardships.
“I feel that right now is a very important time for people to be educated
on what is going on around the world," said Montano Rain. “I’ve chosen
these films because they bring forward, and accurately address some huge
problems that humanity faces as of right now."
“The upcoming generation has a lot to do. The generation before them has
introduced problems that earth has not been faced with before. I feel that
by screening films that both adults and youth can understand, it allows a
more educated group to become active members in preserving and helping the earth,” says Montano Rain.
If you haven’t seen these films yet, NOW is the time ….
