PXV Area Transition & Green Team present two films that reveal “How to Be Alive, Together, Here”. These two documentaries are a prelude to the Earth Week featured presentation of the Invisible Hand, which will screen on Sunday, April 24th.
After this double feature presentation, there will be a brief discussion.
Daringly re-imagines a thriving, resilient civilization after the collapse of our current economies, drawing on the inspirational work of David Fleming, grandfather of the global Transition Towns movement, and author of Lean Logic: A Dictionary for the Future and How to Survive It.
By exploring the ripple effects of our actions in an interconnected world, the three-part CONNECTIVITY PROJECT highlights how different cultures and traditions from around the world, and even science, embrace the importance of interconnectedness. As we follow inspiring individuals who are making a difference in the lives around them, we see these connections exhibited all around us.
And more importantly, empowering viewers to realize that their actions indeed matter and make a difference, all the while encouraging a greater sense of awe, belonging, and responsibility.
The parts in the film are:
Interconnections (15 minutes) — Examines how different cultures and faiths from around the world have a common, time-honored awareness of an interconnected way of being. By raising understanding and awareness about these connections, we explore why this perspective is more important now more than ever before, as we realize that our actions and ways of being impact much more than we can even measure.
Plants Have Wings (16 minutes) — We look into the amazing realm of plants and their pollinators and, as all things are connected, discover that we are each an integral part of the pollination process. As we follow the story of an inspired bicyclist who is a champion supporting threatened Monarch butterflies, we learn how we are all a distinct part of the web of life. Not only are we deeply reliant on pollinators, they too are reliant on us.
Speaking Out! (15 minutes) — Activism is combined with interconnectedness, as an indigenous high school student is inspired by the actions of Lois Gibbs (grass roots activist organizer from Love Canal in the 1970s). We follow Clarissa’s journey to speak out and advocate for the right to clean air, for her family, school, and community in North Portland, Ore.
