Helms Bakery Partners With VisionLA To Screen “Merchants of Doubt”
December 5, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Please join us on Saturday, December 5th at 8:00pm for the screening of Merchants of Doubt. Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, the film takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin.
Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.
UK 2014, 96 mins. Director Robert Kenner
Parking is located at the Free Valet in the lot on Helms Avenue and Venice Boulevard.

The VisionLA ’15 Climate Action Arts Festival is the first-ever multi-disciplinary arts festival throughout the greater Los Angeles area organized to give artists a voice in the increasingly urgent conversation around climate change, resource use and environmental social justice. The festival is an all-volunteer, grassroots effort organized by artists for artists, and for the Los Angeles community as a whole. This first year, the festival is timed to coincide with the UN’s COP21 Global Climate Conference in Paris, from November 30 through December 11, to raise awareness of this important milestone in the international call for strong carbon emissions standards.
