Movie Night: Tomorrow Part 1

August 25, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Henderson Environmental Centre, End of, Groat St, North Beach WA 6020, Australia

Transition Town Stirling movie night.

Tomorrow (French: Demain) is a 2015 French documentary film directed by Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent. Faced with a future that scientists say is a great cause for concern, the film has the distinction of not giving in to catastrophism. Optimistically, it identifies initiatives that have proven themselves in ten countries around the world: concrete examples of solutions to environmental and social challenges of the twenty-first century, be it agriculture, energy, economy, education and governance.

Due to the length of the movie we have decided to show it in 2 parts to allow time for discussion and reflection. It is our intention to screen the movie twice, this is the first screening of Part 1.

Please bring along some food to share.

Entry by donation.

Ecoburbia, 16 Livingstone Street, Beaconsfield, Western Australia

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.
SEED is Executive Produced by Academy Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).

This movie will be held at Ecoburbia – 16 Livingstone Street in Beaconsfield. We will be inside MORTUNG – our community space. There are some dining chairs available but feel free to bring a folding chair if you are more comfy – or some pillows for the floor.
We will not be sharing food over winter, but coffee and tea will be available from 7pm and we encourage you to stay and have a debrief after the movie. The movie will start at 7.30pm.

Please walk or come by bike. If you have to drive please park at the Primary School on Hale Road, not on Beard Street. See you at Ecoburbia!
