WHEN MICKEY CAME TO TOWN (US, 2016, 30 min.)
Twenty-two years ago, Disney thought they could impose an unwanted American History theme park on the people of central Virginia. They thought people wanted white-washed history with rollercoasters and battle reenactements. They thought people wouldn't mind their plans for a massive development of apartments, hotels and golf courses. They thought people wouldn't notice the project's impacts on traffic, sprawl and the environment. They thought wrong. Directed Sam Sheline and produced by Sam Sheline, Chris Palmer, Kristin Pauly, AU's Center for Environmental Filmmaking, and the Prince Charitable.
Q&A with the filmmakers follows screening.
