EIGHT DAYS A WEEK: The Touring Years

Academy Award-winner Ron Howard’s authorized and highly anticipated documentary feature film about The Beatles’ phenomenal early career. Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. This film explores their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music, and built their collective career together – all the while exploring their extraordinary and unique musical gifts and remarkable, complementary personalities.

JUST EAT IT
A Documentary about food waste and food rescue

Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment. Following the documentary (which runs 74 minutes), there will be a discussion with Luis Yepiz, wholesale manager for Food Forward, a local food recovery and donation organization.
