n 2009, artist Chris Jordan travelled to Midway Island and bore witness to tens of thousands of dead albatrosses lying on the ground, their stomachs filled with plastic. After 8 years of filming the life cycles of these beautiful birds, Albatross was created – a visual odyssey examining how human materiality has impacted the natural world.
The debut film of acclaimed artist Chris Jordan, Albatross transcends the normal bounds of a typical nature documentary.
Free Lunch Society
Saturday 24 March 2018, 8pm at Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville
What would you do if your income were taken care of? Free Lunch Society, the first international film in cinemas about basic income, is dedicated to one of the most crucial questions of our times. It explores the history, and possible future, of ‘Universal Basic Income’ and gives us a glimpse into the possible economy of tomorrow.
An unconditional basic income means money for everyone – as a human right without service in return. Is it a visionary reform project, neoliberal axe to the roots of the social state or socially romantic left-wing utopia?
A Silent Transformation
Sunday 25 March 2018, 8pm at Luna Outdoor Cinema in Leederville
A Silent Transformation is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative model. The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective wellbeing in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion and cultural discrimination. As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever.
A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of diverse communities across the Province of Ontario, which by addressing their needs collectively are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation. In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity, and a new popular movement to transform society! Will it grow and flourish?
