This year's featured film is Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, which will be shown at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 20 at the main library on East St. Admission is by donation.
This award-winning film has been called the most ambitious and important environmental documentary ever, focusing on green rights — the rights of human beings to a healthy environment and nature's right to be respected and protected. It shows how these rights are being protected in Ecuador, Argentina, the Philippines and the Netherlands – and presents dramatic stories of the fight for these rights in Canada and the United States. You will see how determined citizens and lawyers have taken on national governments and global corporations – and won. And it puts a spotlight on this question: Why is the legal right to fresh air, clean water, and healthy food not recognized in Canada and the United States?
Please join us for a unique film journey that will shock, surprise, and inspire you.
