An Inconvenient Truth, 10th anniversary showing with producer Scott Burns.
Sunday, August 14th, Doors Open: 7pm, Movie Begins: 8pm
Scott will lead a discussion / Q & A after the film.
Please join us at the Art Garden where we will be showing the movie An Inconvenient Truth. It’s the 10th anniversary of the movie… how is the world doing?
An Inconvenient Truth is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry to protect the one earth we all share. The movie presents scientific concepts and evidence about global warming in a clear, concise and even sometimes entertaining way. It features impressive nature photography, graphs, and animation to visually express complex evidence.
After the movie, there will be a discussion / Q & A with the producer Scott Burns who lives on Howland Canal. You may remember last October we showed the movie Contagion (written by Scott) and had quite a lively debate on vaccinations, etc. afterwards.
So, bring your questions, thoughts and ideas and let’s…discuss! Also feel free to bring your own food and drink. Please NO plastic and clean up after yourself :) The Art Garden is Host-less and Host-free, meaning everyone participates how they can, when they can, with setup and/or cleanup, please visit vcart.garden/helping
