Tipping Points: Voices from the Edge
This film shows in Spokane, Thursday, Sept. 3 @ 6:30 p.m. at the Magic Lantern, 35 W. Main.
Why include this food movie in the blog? It seems that food and sustainability are the two main areas that allow us to view the world today as a microcosm -- the full circle approach of our time to discuss systems thinking, paradigm shift, back to the past, a new post carbon era, and just stopping the unhealthy industrialized ag system that is sickening our planet.
Food and food security are the issues of our time, and technologists, scientists and climate experts are working to gain some sanity in the system. Watch 3 movies for quick edification: Fresh, Food Inc., and The Future of Food. Three great films about the challenges we have in this climate change and sustainability community.
FRESH is more than a movie, it’s a gateway to action. Our aim is to help grow FRESH food, ideas, and become active participant in an exciting, vibrant, and fast-growing movement.
When I write we, I don’t mean our small team (officially two of us, with lots of amazing helps from our interns and volunteers) but I mean YOU. All of you. FRESH is a grassroots efforts for a grassroots movement. It’s been tremendously exciting to see the movie catch on and spread like wild fire, being used all over the country as a platform to raise awareness and connecting people to the solutions available in their community.
Within a month of our launch, we’ve received over 20,000 visitors and hundreds of screenings have already been organized. We want to reach 1 million folks. Not just because that would totally feel nice to our ego (mine especially!), but because, we believe that FRESH can truly help get us to a tipping point, when sustainable food will no longer be just a niche market.
Please help us reach 1 million people (to start with that is.) Organize a home screening or a community screening. Get in touch with us, let us know what we can do more and better.
