Go Green Hudson hosts Suzuki film tonight
Director to participate in post-film discussion
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.
