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.)
