Contact: Jennifer Kaye/Mike Oles 636-4060

Earth House begins Dinner & A Movie on February 26th, 2009

TROUBLE THE WATER will be showing at Earth House 237 N. East Street February 26th at 7PM. Film and popcorn Free. Dinner provided by EarthHouse Cafe specializing in organic fare. Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30PM $10/plate Proceeds to benefit Earth House Film Forum.

TROUBLE THE WATER takes you inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never before seen on screen. It's a redemptive tale of two self-described street hustlers who become heroes-two unforgettable people who survive the storm and then seize a chance for a new beginning..

The film opens the day before the storm makes landfall-twenty-four year old aspiring rap artist Kimberly Rivers Roberts is turning her new video camera on herself and her 9th Ward neighbors trapped in the city. "It's going to be a day to remember," Kim declares. With no means to leave the city and equipped with just a few supplies and her hi 8 camera, she and her husband Scott tape their harrowing ordeal as the storm rages, the nearby levee breaches, and floodwaters fill their home and their community.

Seamlessly weaving 15 minutes of this home movie footage shot the day before and the day after the storm, with archival news segments and verite footage shot over two years, directors Tia Lessin and Carl Deal document a journey of remarkable people surviving not only failed levees, bungling bureaucrats and armed soldiers, but also their own past.

Directed and produced by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal and Executive Produced by Joslyn Barnes and Danny Glover of Louverture Films, edited and co-produced by T. Woody Richman, with addiitonal editing by Mary Lampson, Trouble the Water features an original musical score by Neil Davidge and Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack, and the music of Dr. John, Mary Mary, Citizen Cope, TK Soul, John Lee Hooker, and the Free Agents Brass Band and introduces the music of Black Kold Madina.

Trouble the Water has been supported by grants from the Sundance Institute, the Open Society Institute, and is a project of Creative Capital.

Indiana Electronic & Experimental Music Exposition

Pattern Hungry Records, along with Audio Reconnaissance, will be hosting the
Indiana Electronic & Experimental Music Exposition at the Earth House Collective (237 N. East St.) on Saturday, February 28 , 2009 from 7-11 pm. The Ben Ishmael Revival,
a groove based quartet started by electronica pioneers John Tuttle and Kaiton Slusher, headlines
with Amtrak, The Glitch Clique, and Surreal Estate rounding out the bill.

Alongside the music will be live video by local animator Gibson Thorne and multi-media artist Ian Gunn.

The Ben Ishmael Revival has played recent shows at the Casba and at Birdy’s Bar and
Grill. Theirs is a rockin’ electronic experiment that should not be missed. The Revival is a hard
working group that brings something special to every performance. You must see it to believe it.

Amtrak hails from Morehead, KY. Flipping many styles from House to IDM with equal
mastery, it’s debut EP, "In Transit" has garnered national attention in the underground. Still a
relatively new group - began in 2005 - there is certainly a bright future ahead for Amtrak.

Conceived in 2004, the Glitch Clique is returning to action after a two-year absence.
Featuring the infamous Eric Brown of Audio Recon on everything from samples to drums to
vocals in a duet with jazz composer Bob Wilson – horns, piano, and birdcalls – the Glitch Clique
will surely be a very impressive improvisational performance of sound and music.

Surreal Estate is a mix of the sounds of space sifted through synths, classical keyboards
and violin. “Shake with ice and make the best damndest space martini you have ever had,” says
group founder Kelly Sheets.

A great group of people will be serving coffee and food downstairs. Come one and all to see the Indiana Electronic & Experimental Music Exposition.

Mandala Yoga Workshop

Moving Through and Making Meditative Mandalas
A workshop guided by Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Danielle Brain
Sunday, February 8, 2009, 1:00-4:00
Earth House Collective, 237 North East Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204
To Register: E-Mail or Call 317.636.4060
Fee: $30

This two part workshop begins as a group posture flow in circular form, making mandalas with the form of yoga asana and the connections of energy in the circle. This yoga practice helps create sacred space in ourselves and the space around us. In the second part of our workshop, we enter into a meditation that invites creative flow in making our mandalas.

Mandalas are circular symbolic images that can inspire wisdom and healing in our lives. We draw from the collective circle of energy in this space to help us empower our inner core and purpose in life. The symbolic mandalas we create will assist us as a visual meditative focus to take with us and incorporate into our lives.
