“AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT!” –Austin Chronicle
Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and his friends discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for oil. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter and friends help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a casino tribute band, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.

Director: Charles Wilkinson Canada, 2011, 80 minutes; DVD
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!  This award-winning documentary on the costs of energy extraction in North Western Canada is a long, hard look at our technological affluence and its price.

Lecture/Seminar Social Justice Studies Conversations with Activists 2012 Part 3 - Resisting Political Violence, Torture & the Death Penalty: Connections and discernments in anti-violence activism and work. 2012-03-13 19:30:00
Description

As anti-violence activists in our paid and unpaid work it is important to be able to hold an anti-oppression stance that addresses oppressive practices of violence - but it is also important that all violence isn't conflated in this work. In this talk Vikki will differentiate human rights and social justice, which are connected but very different projects. We'll look at torture and political violence, as understood by the UN and explore why it is important to hold these acts separate from other forms of politicalized violence, such as a rape culture. Often language obscures more than it reveals, and conflating government sanctioned violence with other violence can result in dismissive, mutualizing and impotent responses to acts of violence by the state and governments. At the same time, seeing rape as outside of politicalized violence is also problematic. As activists how can we be most effective in taking on oppression on all fronts? Vikki will take a run at all of these questions, while outlining the need for a position against all state sanctioned executions and torture. About Vikki Reynolds: Vikki is a therapist/activist whose experience includes clinical supervision and therapy with refugees and survivors of torture, mental health and substance abuse counsellors, anti-violence counsellors, and working alongside transgendered and queer communities. Vikki has been the Therapeutic Supervisor of Peak House since 2002,and was a Family Therapist at Peak for many years. Vikki's published work addresses social justice, sustainability, ethics, and trauma. She is an Instructor with VCC, UBC and City University where she received the Deans Award for Distinguished Instruction. UVicSJS on Facebook and Twitter
