Climate Refugees – Thursday, December 8 at 7:00 p.m.

Millions of people from around the world have already been displaced by the devastating effects of climactic disaster, their lives forever disrupted, their homes, communities and livelihoods lost. Their story, a story millions more are facing, is told in Climate Refugeesthis month’s Conscientious Projector presentation on Thursday, December 8, 7:00 p.m. at The Armory Center for the Arts. Writer-director Michael  Nash set out to make a film about the human face of climate change, and the result is both moving and alarming, portending further grand scale challenges for every society on every continent on Earth in this new era of planetary transformation.

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.

The World According to Monsanto

Owning the Food Chain

On Thursday, June 9, 7:00 p.m., Conscientious Projector will screen the acclaimed documentary The World According to Monsanto, in which French journalist/filmmaker Marie-Monique Rubin investigates the chemical/biotech giant that brought us Agent Orange, PCB’s, Bovine Growth Hormones and GMO’s. The thoroughly researched film zeroes in on the company’s global crusade to patent seeds, outlaw the saving of seeds, and take punitive action against farmers who resist. Featuring Seeds of Deception author Jeffrey M. Smith, global sustainability champions Jeremy Rifkin and Vandana Shiva, and many more.  For anyone concerned about biodiversity and the monopolization of the world’s food supply, this is a must-see.

A community discussion follows the film, which is presented with the assistance of Robert Greenwald’s Brave New Theaters program. The film will be shown at the Armory Center for the Arts, located at 145 North Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free.
