Film: Tomorrow

Over the course of a century, our dream of progress commonly called “the American Dream”, fundamentally changed the way we live and continues to inspire many developing countries. We are now aware of the setbacks and limits of such development policies. We urgently need to focus our efforts on changing our dreams before something irreversible happens to our planet. This documentary follows actress Melanie Laurent and activist Cyril Dion as they traverse ten countries to talk to scientists and thought-leaders about ingenious solutions to global warming.

Film: the Beaver Believers

Nature is capable of healing itself. The documentary, “the Beaver Believers” tells  the story of activists who share a common  vision: restoring the North American  Beaver to the watersheds of the American  West. The Beaver Believers encourage us  to embrace a new paradigm for managing  our western lands, one that seeks to  partner with the natural world to help it.  As a keystone species, beaver enrich  their ecosystems, creating the biodiversity  and resiliency our watersheds need to  absorb the impacts of climate change.  

Beavers can show us the way and even  do much of the work for us, if only we can  find the humility to trust in the restorative  power of nature.

Date: Friday, September 9th
Time: 6:30-8:30 PM
