Meet & Greet the filmmakers of “The Devil’s Road”
February 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT
Santa Cruz Public Libraries’ Hidden Gems Film Club has invite NCUPS to join them for a special opportunity to meet and greet a team of documentary filmmakers in the midst of their process. We will sneak a peek at “The Devil’s Road” before it goes to film festivals! These Santa Cruz locals are telling the story of 100 years of ecological change on the peninsula of Baja California, while retracing the steps of American naturalist Edward Alphonso Goldman – related to most of the production team members. The diverse geographic features of Baja California – desert, mountains, plains and coastlines – are a distinct ecoregion where unique plants and animals developed. How important is Baja California, in the spectrum of biodiversity? Are we tarnishing this place? What are our responsibilities when we visit and enjoy it? Come and learn about Baja California, and why it is important for Mexico as well as North to South America as we share the same coastline. It is a treasure we must cherish and protect as a valuable source of seafood and vegetation as well as appreciate for the beautiful environment itself. What is it like to make a film, the joy & hardships? How does this process binds the purpose and ideals of a family? We do not have many opportunities to meet people who actually make film, so bring your questions for Director JT Bruce, Producer Todd Bruce, Associate Producer Bri Bruce, as well as Scientific Director and naturalist Greg Meyer, a professor at CSU Monterey Bay.
HIDDEN GEMS FILM CLUB: NOT YOUR ORDINARY FILM CLUB!
The Santa Cruz Public Libraries invite you to an evening of cinema. Come and enjoy those “hidden gems” of foreign films, documentaries, independents and even perhaps some mainstream movies that you might have missed!

DISCLAIMER: Please expect a much bigger group than the RSVP’s you see here. The screening room can accommodate 50 people tops, so I highly recommend getting there early, around 4:30pm, to secure a seat.
