Director: Renée Scheltema
Presented by Hastings Extinction Rebellion
112 Mins / 2019 / South Africa

A compelling and visually rich documentary directed by award winning, and investigative journalist Renée Scheltema. Her film chronicles the way humans have inadvertently imperiled our planet: species extinction, climate change, the depletion of critical natural resources, and industrial control of our food production.

This unique documentary examines how our economic and financial system connects all these issues, and offers solutions, which could be implemented immediately, from practical everyday fixes to rethinking the overarching myths of our time.
Renée takes off on a multinational voyage, meeting not only prominent experts, but also everyday citizens who concentrate on matters such as organic agriculture, the banning of plastic, saving species, ecological economics, sustainable architecture, renewable energy, and more.

While this film is intended to challenge viewers on many different levels, most of all it offers hope.

Followed by an informal discussion on grief, hope and how to take action both personally and as a community here in Hastings, hosted by Andy Moore, leadership consultant, and Eveline Tijs, psychotherapist and facilitator.
