To the Ends of the Earth
Antidote your anger about Donald Trump’s ‘scientifically ridiculous’ tweet inviting some “good ‘ole global warming” by joining an evening with Herefordshire Green Network and an award winning film narrated by British national treasure, Emma Thompson.
To the Ends of the Earth follows concerned citizens living at the frontiers of extreme oil and gas extraction, bearing witness to a global crossroads – the mayor of an Inuit village in Canada’s high arctic who fears animal damage at the hands of seismic testing, the environmental lawyer visiting energy production zones, and the river conservationist in Utah, fighting to protect the river from oil shale projects.
To the Ends of the Earth brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.
After the film members of Herefordshire Green Network will host a discussion exploring our own local futures. What is beyond exponential growth – and what would our world really look like if it wasn’t dominated by the current global hierarchy
“Wonderfully in touch with this historical moment.” Mark Achbar, The Corporation.
