Think Global Act Ru­ral

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - di­rected by Co­line Ser­reau

The Com­mu­nity Art Lab of the Foreman Art Gallery, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Les AmiEs de la Terre de l’Estrie, is pleased to in­vite the pub­lic to the screen­ing of Think Gobal Act Ru­ral (2010), a doc­u­men­tary by Co­line Ser­reau. Pre­sented in its orig­i­nal French ver­sion at Le Trem­plin 16 – 30 (95 Welling­ton South, Sher­brooke) on Thurs­day, March 17 at 7pm, this doc­u­men­tary ad­dresses cur­rent eco­log­i­cal chal­lenges and in­vites view­ers to dis­cover new farm­ing sys­tems that of­fer bet­ter life and health to com­mu­ni­ties. Di­rec­tor Co­line Ser­reau trav­elled the world for over three years to give a voice to farm­ers, philoso­phers and econ­o­mists who are ex­per­i­ment­ing with al­ter­na­tives and find­ing lo­cal so­lu­tions to re­pair the dam­ages of our growth-driven so­ci­ety. Fol­low­ing the film screen­ing, an open dis­cus­sion will take place dur­ing which the au­di­ence will be en­cour­aged to share their com­ments and ques­tions about find­ing lo­cal so­lu­tions for sus­tain­able liv­ing. With the re­cent eco­log­i­cal, fi­nan­cial, and po­lit­i­cal crises, this doc­u­men­tary’s at­tempt to ex­plain the ef­fects of the cur­rent agri­cul­tural sys­tem as well pro­vide sus­tain­able al­ter­na­tives has be­come an im­per­a­tive in to­day’s so­ci­ety.
