Climate Action at Amazing Earthfest: Documentary Films and Community Dialog

We’ve all been hearing a lot about climate change and global warming. Strongly held opinions are often radically contradictory. What should we as a community and as a nation be doing about it?  Many are convinced, some are believers, others are unsure, and a few are deniers and that’s OK. To evolve our understanding, Amazing Earthfest makes it easy to begin by getting better informed.  Everyone’s views are welcome. To ignore this issue is becoming perilous!

 On Friday, May 13, from 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Crescent Moon Theater, 150 South 100 East, Kanab, t he 10th annual Amazing Earthfest invites the community to come together for a day of action to learn, interact, and then draw your own conclusions. Three feature length films plus a 25 minute short will be screened at no charge to set the stage for discussion. After each film, opportunities will be provided for the audience to engage in civil dialog around this vitally important and increasingly urgent matter.  All points of view are welcomed but arguments will not be allowed! Take in one, two, three or all of the day’s informative screenings! See our complete, award-winning documentary film list at www.AmazingEarthfest.org. Please join the fun!

On the opening day of Amazing Earthfest, don’t miss our free screening of the award winning documentary We Know Not What We Do, Sunday, May 8, 6:00 PM at Crescent Moon Theater. Film maker Elizabeth Gaylynn Baker will personally introduce her 2015 film, and facilitate a community conversation exploring appropriate responses to climate disruption with the audience immediately afterwards.

Films being screened free of charge at the 2016 Earthfest cover ecology, reciprocity, sustainable living, population, permaculture, military dependence on fossil fuels, species extinction, landscape architecture and the theory of Gaia. Titles include E.O. Wilson: Of Ants & Men, Jens Jensen: The Living Green, Animate Earth, From Billions to None, Inhabit, Mother: Caring for Seven Billion, Breaking Point, Racing to Zero, The True Cost and The Burden.

Each weekday of the festival, the February 2016 TED TALK, Dream Big On Climate, delivered by former Vice President Al Gore, founder of the Climate Reality Project, will be screened. His talk presents the very latest scientific information about current levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, pre-historic and present trends in climate change, as well as the current state of discourse and action to address the problem in the U. S. and around the world. Students from 6th to 12th grade are especially invited to attend all film screenings at Amazing Earthfest. They will inherit the world we leave to them!
