Green Door Film Society Screening Oliver Stone’s South of the Border in Egg Harbor, Nov 18

Posted on October 30, 2010 by Stephen Kastner | No Comments

Controversial, thought-provoking, artistic and independent films are the focus of biweekly film screenings in the loft above Greens N Grains Deli in Egg Harbor.

There are many so-called “art films” that get shown and discussed regularly upon release if you are fortunate enough to live near a college campus. Often you can find some of these unseen cinematic treasures in rental outlets or on Netflix, but the chance to engage in thoughtful discussion with others afterward is missing. Film aficionados in Door County are encouraged to join in the creation of a new interest group that will pursue their love of cinema at biweekly meetings of the Green Door Film Society.

The concept was launched last winter in the Greens N Grains Dinner and a Movie Series which showed a variety of’s films from around the world and concluded in March with a local filmmaker’s night. As the organizer of last year’s series, I want to build on the success and expand the concept further with the inclusion of themed discussions as an integral part of the meetings.

The Green Door Film Society will have exclusive use of the loft facilities which comfortably seats about 30 people. Every other Thursday, beginning on November 18, we’ll get together to watch and watch and discuss film and the film making process throughout the “quiet season.” Notes and discussion questions for each film will be provided here in special category along with posters that you can download and post to help get the word out.

On Thursday, November 18 at 7 pm we’ll begin the series with Oliver Stone’s latest documentary, “South of the Border.” Eager to explore how the U.S. media has depicted Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, director Oliver Stone travelled to South America to interview Chavez and several other South American presidents in the process. Among the distinguished subjects in Stone’s probing and controversial documentary are Bolivia’s Evo Morales, Brazil’s Lula da Silva, Argentina’s Nestor Kirchner and Cuba’s Raúl Castro. The film is certain to provoke dialogue and was not shown in any local Door County commercial venues during its recent box-office release.

Greens N Grains Deli will host a natural and organic dinner special each evening before the Green Door Film Society meetings. Enjoy a delicious soup specialty, salad, a fresh baked roll and a cup of tea for $7.50, available from 6 pm on. The Film Society screenings take place at 7 pm and there is no charge for membership but seating at screenings is limited to 30 people.

Greens N Grains Natural Foods and Deli is open daily from 10 am – 5 pm – except on Film Society screening nights when they will remain open until 9 pm – in downtown Egg Harbor at 7821 Hwy 42, and can be reached at 920.868.9999 or by email at The store’s Website features news and special monthly discount flyers at
