First Sunday Films at The Watershed

Sunday October 7, 2018

The First Sunday Films are shown October through June.  This Sunday's selection will include these 3 short films:

Anthropocene

2016, ENVIRONMENT – 28 MIN

In the midst of the climate change debate, Anthropocene examines the crisis facing our planet from a fresh perspective not often considered by the mainstream. It's a valuable reminder that the human footprint could ultimately prove more devastating to our planet than Mother Nature herself.

 

Donald Trump, The Koch Brothers and Their War on Climate Science

2017, ENVIRONMENT – 32 MIN

Our planet is riddled with floods, rising sea levels, severe weather, drought, and the highest temperatures in recorded history. Up to 99% of climate scientists agree that the current trajectory of the climate crisis will lead us to an apocalyptic scenario of unimaginable proportions. Narrated by acclaimed actor and activist Danny Glover, the film examines threats to the climate change movement in the age of President Donald Trump.

 

WATER WARRIORS

2017, USA/Canada – 22 min.

Water Warriors is the story of a community's successful fight against the oil and natural gas industry in New Brunswick, Canada, A multicultural group of unlikely warriors set up a series of road blockades, sometimes on fire, preventing exploration. After months of resistance, their efforts not only halted drilling; they elected a new government and won an indefinite moratorium on fracking in the province.

As always there will be free locally sourced organic popcorn.  Come watch some films and then hike our trails!  We hope to see you on Sunday (October 7th).
