This is a FREE showing of the film "END:CIV" directed by film-maker
Franklin Lopez, followed by a discussion.
It is an indispensable piece that everyone should watch!
"END:CIV examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and
environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned
landscapes and shell-shocked nations. Based in part on Endgame, the
best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END:CIV asks: “If your homeland was
invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air,
and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?”
The causes underlying the collapse of civilizations are usually traced to
overuse of resources. As we write this, the world is reeling from economic
chaos, peak oil, climate change, environmental degradation, and political
turmoil. Every day, the headlines re-hash stories of scandal and betrayal
of the public trust. We don’t have to make outraged demands for the end of
the current global system — it seems to be coming apart already.
But acts of courage, compassion and altruism abound, even in the most
damaged places. By documenting the resilience of the people hit hardest by
war and repression, and the heroism of those coming forward to confront
the crisis head-on, END:CIV illuminates a way out of this all-consuming
madness and into a saner future."
The event is absolutely FREE but donations will be accepted for filmmaker
Franklin Lopez (he spent 5 years making this movie and traveling all over
the country, it would be nice to support his work!)
