From Findhorn, Scotland, a positive and inspiring film about Findhorn ecovillage's transition to a low carbon future. Featuring visionary leaders and pioneers in the fields of Human Ecology and Global Transition, The Turning Point takes an uplifting look at our potential to create a life-sustaining society as we face the twin challenges of Peak Oil and Climate Change.


The film looks at some of the sustainability initiatives put into practice over the last 20 years around the Findhorn Foundation community in Scotland, an interfaith spiritual community, ecovillage and international center for holistic education. Powered by community-owned wind turbines, Findhorn residents and visitors are fed from its own community garden and community supported agriculture (CSA) service, along with locally produced eggs, cheese, and baked goods. The village uses its own car pooling service, a local currency, and its own ecological sewage treatment system.


The documentary features interviews with:

  • Richard Heinberg, Author of 'Powerdown: Options and Actions for a Post-Carbon world'.

  • Rob Hopkins, Co-Founder of the Transition Network, author of 'The Transition Handbook: From Oil Dependency to Local Resilience'.

  • Joanna Macy, Author, 'Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect our Lives, Our World', Deep Ecologist, Buddhist Scholar.

  • Megan Quinn Bachman, Outreach Director of Community Solutions and co-producer of the film 'The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil'.


The film is 45 minutes long; discussion afterwards.�����Suggested donation: $10. Proceeds will go to maintaining the 388 Atlantic space and to the creators of The Turning Point film.
