ECO-SURVIVOR FILMS

If your Saturday morning usually includes kids' cartoons, try out the "green" cartoons -- actually animated films -- that will be shown Saturday morning to kick off the Eco-Survivor Camp hosted by the Pittsburgh Filmmakers and the Rachel Carson Institute on the Squirrel Hill campus of Chatham College.

The films and shorts, including "The Lorax," by Dr. Seuss, run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event includes lectures, educational programs and an environmental craft fair. Admission is free.

At 6 p.m. Saturday, the Eco-Survivor program continues on a more adult theme with a reception and lecture by John Passacantando, executive director of Greenpeace USA, titled "The Environment Knows No Boundaries," about the organization's global campaign on toxics and how it has links to Pittsburgh's environmental issues.

The lecture will be followed by screenings of "Blue Vinyl," a documentary by director Judith Helfand at 7:30 p.m., and "Baraka," by director Ron Fricke at 9:30 p.m.

Admission to the lecture is $8; tickets to the screenings are $5. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended by calling Pittsburgh Filmmakers at 412-681-5449, ext. 232. Screenings of "Blue Vinyl" and "Baraka" will repeat at 2 and 4 p.m. respectively on Sunday.
