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.
