Di­rec­tor to par­ti­ci­pate in post-film dis­cus­sion

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

A grass­roots en­vi­ron­men­tal group in Hud­son will show­case a film fea­tu­ring no­ted Ca­na­dian scien­tist and edu­ca­tor Da­vid Su­zu­ki to­night, while the film's pro­du­cer will al­so par­ti­ci­pate via vi­deo confe­ren­cing in a talk fol­lo­wing the mo­vie.

Feu Vert/Go Green Hud­son will present Force of Na­ture: The Da­vid Su­zu­ki Mo­vie on Wed­nes­day, Ja­nua­ry 12. In the re­cent­ly re­lea­sed film, Su­zu­ki, the ico­nic Ca­na­dian scien­tist, edu­ca­tor, broad­cas­ter and ac­ti­vist, de­li­vers a 'last lec­ture' - what he des­cribes as "a dis­til­la­tion of my life and thoughts, my le­ga­cy, what I want to say be­fore I die". The film in­ter­weaves the lec­ture with scenes fromthe places and events in Su­zu­ki's life.

"For the first time since life ap­pea­red on earth, one spe­cies - us - is single-han­ded­ly al­te­ring the phy­si­cal, che­mi­cal and bio­lo­gi­cal na­ture of earth. We have be­come a force of na­ture," Su­zu­ki said in a press re­lease is­sued by Go Green Hud­son. The scree­ning will take place to­night at 7:30 p.m. at the Hud­son Com­mu­ni­ty Centre, which is lo­ca­ted at 394, rue Main in Hud­son. The film's award­win­ning di­rec­tor Stur­la Gun­nars­son will then join the au­dience for a post-film dis­cus­sion via Skype. Ad­mis­sion to the film is free.
