A week after Earth Day, 2014, join us for a major screening of the 2012 documentary Arise, described by Huffington Post as “transformative,” and by the New York Times as a “genuinely felt letter to the world.” While many films about the state of the planet leave one feeling depressed, the film makers have made this an experience that will uplift you and inspire action!
Transition Albany and Transition Berkeley are screening Arise
for one night only as a benefit for our local heroes, Planting Justice
Tickets can be purchased from the Albany Twin Theater box office (and online
) for $10 ($8 for seniors and students).
Come a little early to hear EthnoFusyon Muzik by Mahal with Evelie Delfino, Mama Sue, Jed Såles, and to assure a good seat!
Narrated by Daryl Hannah, Arise captures the portraits and stories of extraordinary women around the world who are coming together to heal the injustices against the earth. The film does a beautiful job of covering food justice issues round the world and weaves together poetry, music, art and stunning scenery to create a hopeful and collective story that inspires us to work for the earth.
Written, directed and produced by Lori Joyce with Candace Orlando, Arise has won numerous film awards, and Executive Producer Molly Stone will be present at our screening to answer questions after the film.
Please come, bring friends, and get inspired by the film’s vital message about the power of women (and all Earth’s citizens) to lead far-reaching environmental change.
