Fourth Friday "This Changes Everything" 10/23/2015 7:15p in Palo Alto

Fourth Friday/Films of Vision and Hope

"This Changes Everything" - film and conversation

An epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.

Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, this film presents powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

In the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.

"Occupy The Farm" film screening at Sunnyvale Public Library on Mon. 10/12/15 6-9p

Films of Vision and Hope comes to Sunnyvale! You are invited to join us for a free screening of the film "Occupy The Farm" at the Sunnyvale Public Library, 665 West Olive, Sunnyvale, CA, on Monday evening 10/12/15 from 6:30-9p.

Synopsis: OCCUPY THE FARM tells the story of 200 urban farmers who walk onto a publicly-owned research farm and plant two acres of crops in order to save the land from becoming a real-estate development.
This direct action set up a vibrant tent village on land destined to become condos, while their crops blocked the development plans of a cash-starved public institution, the University of California, Berkeley.
Their confrontational, yet hopeful tactic raises important questions: What are the most effective ways to bring healthy food to hungry, urban neighborhoods? And, who should control research and education at the world’s most important public university: private interests or the public good?

Brought to you by Charles Street Gardens, Full Circle Farm Sunnyvale and Transition Silicon Valley. Here is a link to the trailer: http://occupythefarmfilm.com/
