Afternoon at the Movies

Join the Food for Thought folks for an afternoon at the movies on October 16th at 1:00 PM. Grab a snack or bring your lunch.  The movie will be shown in Room L and run about an hour and a half, followed by a discussion on the veranda.  This award-winning movie, EATING OUR WAY TO EXTINCTION, narrated by Kate Winslet, is a movie that you don’t want to miss. 

EATING OUR WAY TO EXTINCTION takes audiences on a cinematic journey around the world, from the depths of the Amazon rainforests to the Taiwanese Mountains, the Mongolian desert, the US Dust Bowl, the Norwegian Fjords and the Scottish coastlines, telling the story of our planet through shocking testimonials, poignant accounts from indigenous people most affected by our ever-changing planet, globally renowned figures and leading scientists. This powerful documentary sends a simple but impactful message by uncovering hard truths and addressing, on the big screen, the most pressing issue of our generation — ecological collapse. Confronting and entertaining, this documentary allows audiences to question their everyday choices, industry leaders and governments. Featuring a wealth of world-renowned contributors, including Sir Richard Branson and Tony Robbins, it has a message of hope that will empower audiences. (*Rotten Tomatoes)
