The second food justice film event in the series brought to you by the High Falls Food Co-op, the Holistic Health Community and the Rosendale Theatre —Thursday, February 22nd at 7pm. The film is called Eating Our Way to Extinction. The film’s tag line “When food costs the earth, who pays the price?” gives a sense of the movie’s depth.
EATING OUR WAY TO EXTINCTION takes audiences on a cinematic journey around the world, from the depths of the Amazon rainforests to the Taiwanese Mountains, the Mongolian desert, the US Dust Bowl, the Norwegian Fjords and the Scottish coastlines, telling the story of our planet through shocking testimonials, poignant accounts from indigenous people most affected by our ever-changing planet, globally renowned figures and leading scientists. This powerful documentary sends a simple but impactful message by uncovering hard truths and addressing, on the big screen, the most pressing issue of our generation – ecological collapse.
Confronting and entertaining, this documentary allows audiences to question their everyday choices, industry leaders and governments. Featuring a wealth of world-renowned contributors and celebrities, it has a message of hope that will empower audiences.
The co-op, the theatre, and the Holistic Health Community will be joined by the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, the Institute for Animal Happiness, Lagusta Yearwood and other local vegan activists for a Q&A discussion after the film.
