Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Garbage Warrior
(2007, dir. Olive Hodge, 86 mins, NR)
This documentary opens with maverick architect Michael Reynolds doing pull-ups in his Earthship, a self-sustaining dwelling made from natural materials and the detritus of consumerism: tires, beer cans and plastic bottles. Filmmaker Oliver Hodge profiles a passionate, sometimes curmudgeonly visionary as he takes his architectural methods to tsunami-torn countries and battles to overturn inflexible zoning laws in the name of sustainability. Shot over three years and in four countries, Garbage Warrior is an often-humorous exploration of what it means to go against the grain.

Co-presented by AIA Indianapolis.
