DVS Movie Night Highlights 2005 Summer Convention

This summer's American Council of the Blind (ACB) Convention in Las Vegas, NV, will feature our annual free DVS Movie Night! Join the DVS staff on Monday, July 4th at 7pm for the Academy Award winning film "Ray." The film's star Best Actor Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx and director Taylor Hackford have been honored with the American Council of the Blind's Media Access Award for their efforts. Videos of new releases and a selection of previously released films will be available for sale at the DVS booth throughout the ACB convention. We look forward to seeing all our old friends and introducing DVS to new ones during the convention.

PBS Presents...The Meaning of Food

Don't miss the described PBS presentation "The Meaning of Food" airing Thursdays in April. Hosted by chef Marcus Samuelsson, "The Meaning of Food" travels the country exploring just what food means to America socially and culturally. What we eat, how we eat it and with whom we share our meals reveals a lot about who we are. Join us as we break bread with people who invite cameras into their kitchens, restaurants, pastry bake-offs, lunch trucks, farms, beloved burger joints and even to a Bengali fertility feast.

PBS will air "The Meaning of Food" in three one-hour installments over three consecutive Thursdays beginning April 7 with "Food and Life". "Food and Culture" will air on April 14 and "The Meaning of Food" will conclude with "Food and Family" on April 21. Please check your local PBS listings for exact airdates and times.
