Inhabit

Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

Save the Farm

SAVE THE FARM tells the story of the largest urban farm in the United States, a 14-acre organic farm sitting right in the middle of South Central Los Angeles. Over 350 farmers cultivated this farm, which fed their families and community and created an urban oasis for more than 14 years. But when the city sells this public tract of land to a developer in a closed door session, activists and celebrities stage an 11th hour tree sit to try and save the farmers from eviction.

Although this film depicts one local story, filmmaker Michael Kuehnert demonstrates that protecting green spaces and urban farming is a successful solution for local, affordable organic food in cities everywhere and an important building block for a sustainable future.

Dear Friends of SJS,
Victoria Friends pf Cuba announces that this month's Social Justice Film Night has been MOVED FROM THURSDAY TO FRIDAY, MAY 22
This coming FRIDAY, MAY 22 we present:


This film is inspired by an extraordinary true story.  It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families.  Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person.  As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.
7:00pm FRIDAY, MAY 222994 Douglas St. (BCGEU Hall) Victoria, BC

This is what happened to me last night...


SHD

Yesterday I showed my landlord the new trailer for our upcoming documentary “Whoa Canada”. He got so paranoid about me uploading “dangerous” videos from his internet connection that he actually confronted me in the middle of the night and asked me to pack up and leave. I’m now sleeping at a friend’s house. As unfortunate as this is, my landlord was right.

The film we’re making is going to be “dangerous”, but in all the right ways.
