Press Release: MEO Productions and the Oaks Theater Present POWER TRIP – Theatrically Berkeley

Tuesday December 14, 2010 - 07:33:00 PM

On Saturday December 18th at Noon at The Oaks Theater 1875 Solano Ave, North Berkeley, there will be a special showing of Power Trip –Theatrically Berkeley (78min) by Emio Tomeoni.

Power Trip – Theatrically Berkeley is a journey through modern day Berkeley politics and theatrics. With exclusive interviews from top policy makers and prominent noise makers, Power Trip is an unfiltered look at the frantic pace of the activists and reactionists, asking only one question: Does anything actually ever get done here? 

Over the course of three years, filmmaker Emio Tomeoni submerged himself in the activists’ culture. He started with an environmental thread (Berkeley attempted to be the greenest city in America) but then, the story quickly pulled in many directions. From jumping in front of cars, living in trees and disrupting Congress, whatever the cause, Berkeley was there to be heard. This unintentional comedy captures the feel, pace and message of Avery active public. following the loudest of the population. But do they really speak for the whole city? Just how self-serving this movement is, is left for you to decide. 

Admission is $7.00 (a portion goes to the Berkeley Humane Society Shelter Fire Relief Fund)
