Film: Recipes for Disaster
If you live in the Vancouver area, you will want to see this important film:
On April 16, view the third and final film of DOXA’s Documentary Film Series in the lead-up to our May festival. Recipes for Disaster follows a young Anglo-Finnish family as they rid themselves of all oil-based products for a year. The challenge proves to be more emotionally difficult than the family anticipates and John, father and instigator of the oil fast, must find a balance between living oil-free and keeping a functional family.

This may sound familiar to some readers for I wrote about it over a year ago after seeing it on CBC. I recommend it highly!
