DOUBLE FEATURE

SUSTAINABLE FUTURES

This film takes us to seven communities in three countries where sustainability is a high priority. French farmers and Canadians share their insights. In El Paso, Texas activists are teaching farm workers about the dangers of pesticides. In Chicago, Friends of the River are finding that native Chicagoans are eager to help clean up the river and its banks. In Mexico, educators and activists are creating sustainable communities. A team of Canadians and Americans are shown working together to restore and regenerate a stream. Each segment of the film demonstrates the enthusiasm and the personal satisfaction that is engendered by the participants who are working together for the common purpose of upgrading their environment and surroundings.

THE LIVING LAND

Three organic food growers and a famous chef (Alice Waters) change common agricultural and consuming practices to get away from agribusiness which leads to soil erosion and food contaminated. There is now an ever-increasing awareness of the need to change our perception about how we grow our food and how we treat the land.

Before and after the film, everyone is welcome to indulge in our Humanist Tea House.
