Within Reach movie & post-climate-rally visiting cohousers conversation (DC)

  • Feb 17, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Experience and discuss the future of sustainable community with the movie Within Reach, with conversation with Associate Producer Raines Cohen, at a near-Metro cohousing community. Warm up after the #ForwardOnClimate rally at the White House (and maybe park there beforehand and Metro in to avoid congestion) and meet cohousers and cohousing professionals visiting from all over. Sponsored by Mid-Atlantic Cohousing, the regional group providing education about community in the greater DC area.

Raines' friends Amanda and Ryan set out to make a documentary of a trip seeking sustainable community, visiting 100 Ecovillages, cohousing neighborhoods, co-ops, group houses, and more, all across the country... 6500 miles by bicycle!

The movie is now available for community screenings, after several years in development. If you saw the early draft when the National Cohousing Conference came to town two years ago, come see it again - it is much shorter and focussed on ten key communities, including cohousing and spiritual communities, and includes animations about sustainable community.

... one man in the Berkeley Fundraiser Preview Premiere audience stood up and said:

"I fell in love with this country again."

... Betsy Morris of East Bay Cohousing writes:
"A fabulous and inspiring movie. A new
take on the great American road trip."

Josh Harper of New Hope Community in Oakland, California said:
"I was so inspired by your film tonight. The world is longing
to know the truth you reveal in your journey. May it be seen by many."

Doors at 6:00, film rolls at 6:30ish, with conversation to follow. Refreshments available.

Suggested Donation $15, or $10 for members of Mid-Atlantic Cohousing member groups.

RSVP here to get sent the address and directions.

Raines Cohen is a Cohousing Coach and Cohousing California/East Bay Cohousing regional organizer in Berkeley, California.

    Eastern Village Cohousing and Takoma Village Cohousing make cameo appearances in this film; there are more-extensive segments in several Arizona, Vermont and New York cohousing neighborhoods and some Mid-Atlantic region EcoVillages. I look forward to sharing the movie with cohousers in DC this weekend.
