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.”

Houston, TX 77004 United States
Free. Donations encouraged.

Working as a white ally against racism is hard but not impossible.  One thing that doesn’t help the cause is saying “I don’t see color.”  The failure to see color only benefits white America.  A world without color is a world without racial debt.  Rather, the most radical action a white person can take is to acknowledge privilege, to admit that in the institutional and deep psychological structures of the United States, the underlying assumption is that white lives are worth more than black lives.
