As part of the Still Moving series of films being screened in Lewes churches, Transition Town Lewes is partnering with The Depot to show this award-winning documentary that's already become a phenomenon across more than 30 countries.
After a special briefing for the journal Nature announced the possible extinction of a part of mankind before the end of the 21st century, filmmakers Mélanie Laurent and Cyril Dion travelled worldwide to figure out what could lead to this disaster and what concrete steps could avoid it.
On their travels, they visit permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, creative schools and ambitious recycling projects. Exploring those concrete actions that are already having a positive effect in local communities, Laurent and Dion began to figure out what a different tomorrow could look like…
This is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative and radical solutions in food, energy, transport, economics and education - and the perfect antidote to our post-Brexit, post-Trump malaise.
Thursday 27th April 2017, 17.30 - 20.00, Old Tree Cafe, FIELD HOUSE - Preston Barracks, Lewes Road, Brighton BN2 4GL
Inhabit is a feature length documentary introducing permaculture: a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics, governance, and on. The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what's possible - what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.
May 13th 2017, 3-6pm. Subud Centre, Station St, Lewes £10 - with a taste bud sensation!
