The Transition Town Group is hosting a film and discussion night on Monday, Dec. 16 starting at 6:30 p.m. in the Central Cariboo Arts Centre.

The film being shown is called A Feire Green Fire, The battle for a living planet.

Environmentalism is the largest movement the world has ever seen and it may also be the most important — in terms of what’s at stake.

Yet it’s not easy being green. Environmentalists have been reviled as much as revered, for being killjoys and Cassandras.

Writer-director Mark Kitchell efficiently divides the film into five acts — “Conservation,” “Pollution,” “Alternatives,” “Globalization” and “Climate Change.”

The film, narrated by Robert Redford, Ashley Judd, and Meryl Streep, gives us a sweeping history of the enviromental movement by recounting a host of seminal persons and events including:  Aldo Leopold, John Muir, Rachael Carson, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and yes President Nixon to name a few.

Come early for tea/coffee and browse the lending library  (doors open 6 p.m.)
