Meet filmmaker Regis Tremblay 11:59:30-Thirty Seconds to Midnight

May 25, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Donations accepted

Reception with Regis Tremblay

My new documentary, Thirty Seconds to Midnight, is ready and we will show it in Houston, TX

This has been a very long, three year project that began with my first feature documentary, The Ghosts of Jeju. It was then that I realized the U.S. plan for full spectrum dominance of the planet. My research and interest since then has focused on the trajectory of Manifest Destiny since the white, European explorers came to the Americas in the 15th Century.

And so it is, America’s destiny has all life on the planet on the very brink of extinction. As Dr. Caldicott wonders at the end of the film, “Are we an evolutionary aberration designed in an evolutionary sense not to survive? I wonder.”

The history of the farm was always a place where animals and plants were rotated in the fields. The animal manure provided fertility for the plants to grow. In the last 75 years, farming has steadily moved away from that. They have created new industries providing fertility through fossil fuel based fertilizers, mined amendments and manure, blood meal and bone meal collected from confined animal feeding operations. These are trucked to the farm, spread with tractors and tilled into the soil, destroying the microbiology of the soil food web. The nutrients in the soil and our food have plummeted and diet related disease has skyrocketed.

IT’S no secret that Beijing has been building up its military might in the South China Sea.

But there’s another superpower making an even bigger play to stay top dog and many of us wouldn’t event realize. The United States has surrounded China with 400 military bases in an almost perfect “noose”.

In a new documentary set to air on Sunday night, The Coming war on China, award-winning journalist and filmmaker John Pilger challenges the notion of the world’s newest, biggest trading nation as an enemy.  He also reveals the build-up to war taking place right on Beijing’s doorstep.

You are invited to go on the Journey of the Universe in October, with three opportunities to be awe-struck by this Emmy-award winning documentary which narrates the 14 billion year story of the universe's development in a single hour. The film tells this story in a way that is accessible to everyone: drawing on astronomy and physics to explain the emergence of galaxies and stars, geology and chemistry to understand the formation of Earth, biology and botany to trace life's evolution, and anthropology and history to see the rise of humans. Journey weaves science and humanities in a new way that allows for a comprehensive sense of awe and wonder to arise. This approach expands the human perspective to one that values life's complexity and sees the role of humans as critical to the further flourishing of the Earth community. An open facilitated discussion will follow each film screening.
