Nov 20: Idle Threat film screening
Can one man’s quest to make the world a better place for everyone to live in, really work? George Pakenham, self-described vigilante (and filmmaker), walks the streets of New York to stop what many see as a victimless crime: idling. What they don’t realize is how they are contributing to asthma air pollution and the oil crisis. In order to raise awareness, Pakenham goes door-to-door – that is, car door-to-car door – explaining to unknowing drivers that they are breaking the law when they idle for more than three minutes. He just wants the law to be enforced. (2012; 60 min)
The director is scheduled to attend.

7 p.m. at the Harris Theater (809 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222). Tickets are $9, available here. Part of the 32nd Three Rivers Film Festival, co-presented with the Breathe Project.
