Conscientious Projector for May, 2015: The Impact of Overpopulation on Planet Earth

MV5BMjcxMjU5MDAwOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDkyMjIzOA@@._V1_SY317_CR2,0,214,317_AL_This month’s Conscientious Projector feature documentary, Mother: Caring for 7 Billionbrings to light an issue that silently fuels our most pressing environmental, economic, humanitarian and social crises–global population growth. The groundbreaking, award-winning film screens on Thursday, May 14, 7:00 p.m. at Armory Center for the Arts.

Filmmaker Christophe Fauchére and a bevy of international experts and scientists examine the doubling of the number of people on Earth in the past 50 years and boldly address the reluctance of governments and societies to confront the problem due to its polarizing attendant factors of religion, economics, overconsumption, family planning and gender equality. Paul Erlich, author of the classic The Population Bomb and one of the film’s participants, has said, “Mother is a beautifully crafted and unique film that dispels the myths from business leaders and government that we can grow forever.”


A community discussion follows the film. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
