Cinémas Palme D'Or in Palm Desert presents a special screening of the documentary film "Greedy Lying Bastards," with a live Q&A session with the film's director Craig Scott Rosenbraugh, Saturday night, March 23 at 6:50 p.m. The Q&A session will follow the screening of the film.
"Climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today. Yet, as evidence of our changing climate mounts and the scientific consensus proves human causation, there continues to be little political action to thwart the warming of our planet. "Greedy Lying Bastards" investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is not only a reality but also a growing problem placing us on the brink of disaster." - One Earth Productions

Whatever your movie choice this week, please remember your movie theater etiquette: silence your cell phones and no texting, please don't talk during the film and remove your children if they become a distraction to other audience members. Don't forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
