August 8th Thursday 7 pm  Film Night at the Ocean Beach Green Center “Independent America: The Two Lane Search for Mom & Pop” 

This 2005 documentary follows Hanson Hosein (former NBC journalist) and his wife, Heather Hughes (NBC News) as they hit the road and travel 13 thousand miles through 32 states in search of Independent America. They do it all while abiding by two simple rules of the road: 1) No Interstates: They can only travel on secondary highways and country roads 2) They can only do business with Mom & Pop. No McDonalds, No Best Westerns. No Wal-Marts. The documentary feature uncovers the growing discontent with big box, corporate America. The filmmakers capture pockets of resistance across the country, which adds up to a nationwide opposition.
