The award-winning SXSW film "Los Wild Ones" follows the lives of Irishman Reb Kennedy — "the most infuriating, difficult man you can't help but love" — and the artists on his LA indie label, Wild Records. Wild is composed of young Hispanic musicians who write and perform 1950s-style rock 'n' roll that insiders call a hybrid of rockabilly and punk rock. Raw and unfiltered, the film delivers an honest look at the label's ethos and unconventional but tight-knit family of Reb, the father figure, and his "kids."

Livestock have a massive impact on the environment. Nearly a third of the planet's ice-free land surface is devoted to raising the animals we either eat or milk. Thirty percent of the crops we grow are fed to animals. The latest UN Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) report estimates suggest that livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of man-made greenhouse gas emissions—the same amount produced by all the world's cars, planes, trains, and boats put together. It is also predicted that meat production is going to double in the next 40 years.
