West Kootenay EcoSociety presents Revolution at the Nelson Civic Theatre
From the extraordinary filmmaker who brought us Sharkwater comes Revolution, an inspiring and stunning look at climate change and the activists inspired to stop it.
The movie is playing one night only, Wednesday, February 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Nelson Civic Theatre Society as a benefit for West Kootenay EcoSociety.
In an effort to uncover the truth and find the secret to saving the ecosystems we depend on for survival, filmmaker Rob Stewart (Sharkwater) embarks on a life-threatening adventure.
From the coral reefs in Papua New Guinea and deforestation in Madagascar to the largest and most destructive environmental project in history in Alberta, Canada, he reveals that all of our actions are interconnected and that environmental degradation, species loss, ocean acidification, pollution and food/water scarcity are reducing the Earth’s ability to house humans. How did this happen, and what will it take to change the course that humanity has set itself on?
Travelling the globe to meet with the dedicated individuals and organizations working on a solution, Stewart finds encouragement and hope, pointing to the revolutions of the past and how we’ve evolved and changed our course in times of necessity.
If people were informed about what was really going on, they would fight for their future – and the future of other generations. From the evolution of our species to the revolution to save it, Stewart and his team take viewers on a groundbreaking mission into the greatest war ever waged.
Tickets for EcoSociety members, student and seniors are $8. General Admission is $10
