Transition Ossining presents the eco-comedy "How to Boil A Frog" at the Ossining Library Budarz Theater on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 7:00 - 9:00 P.M.  A comedic documentary about overshoot: too many people using up too little planet much too fast. Yes, it's taken the kind of material that makes people jump off bridges, puts it in a blender, and churns out a Smoothie o’ Fun that gives you the Big Picture of what the hell is going on with our so-called civilization, and tells you what you and I can do about it that will not only actually make a difference (no light bulbs!) but also make our lives better right now! More fun! More friends!  It’s a bargain.   From a review on the Movie Review website: "How To Boil A Frog markets itself by claiming to “[save] civilization with comedy” – and, in my humble opinion, it does a pretty good job at that. The film is quirky, cheeky, and well narrated. (I promise that I won’t spoil the ending and tell you whether or not you actually learn how to boil a frog)."
