'Tomorrow' - Film Screening & Discussion

howing again due to popular demand... A joyful message of hope for a better, greener and more sustainable future. When contemplating the world our children will inherit, it is easy to become paralysed by the prospect of resource scarcity, species extinction and collapsing ecosystems. For the directors of Tomorrow (actress Mélanie Laurent and environmental activist Cyril Dion) the problems we face are, in the most part, only too well known. What we need are solutions.

'The Green Lie' - Film Screening & Discussion

Environmentally-friendly electric cars, sustainably-produced food products, fair production processes… Can our purchasing power help save the world?

In this tongue-in-cheek two-hander, Austrian director Werner Boote and German author Kathrin Hartmann meticulously unpick some of the most prevalent ‘greenwashing’ myths at play today. They take viewers on a round-the-globe tour of corporate hypocrisy, to the sites of catastrophic environmental disasters and shocking land rights violations – all of which are harming humans, animals and the planet despite the glowing promises of effective self-regulation.
