Eco-Film Series: Theater of Life

Thursday January 12, 7-9pm

Venue: Film.Ca Cinemas – 171 Speers Rd.
Admission: $5/Adult $2/Student, Tickets available at the door

Film Length: 94min
Theater of Life is about the Refettorio Ambrosiano, an extraordinary soup kitchen conceived theater-of-life-poster-lgby renowned chef Massimo Bottura during the Milan 2015 World’s Fair. Massimo invited 60 of the world’s best chefs to join him to cook for refugees and the homeless of Milan. All meals were made from the waste food of Expo.

For Expo Milano 2015, renowned chef Massimo Bottura, whose Osteria Francescana was named world’s best restaurant in 2016, invited 60 of his international confrères to join him in transforming food destined for the dumpster into delicious and nutritious meals for Italy’s hungriest residents. But the documentary delves far deeper than this important food story: it captures the moving encounters of guests at the soup kitchen who have found a welcoming community there, showing us glimpses of their heart and soul in the process.

A visual feast in itself, Theater of Life puts a human face on its powerful message of social justice while raising awareness about the enormous environmental impact of food waste.

Eco-Film Series: Bikes Vs. Cars

Venue: Film.Ca Cinemas – 171 Speers Rd.
Admission: $2/student, $5/adult

Film Length: 90 min
We’re on the move! Halton Green Screens is proud to present Bikes vs. Cars, the gripping documentary about the lives of many pro-cycling activistsBikes vs Cars and what they are doing around the world to influence how cities are built but more importantly, their vision to create more awareness towards the need for safety on the roads.

There are around one billion cars operating in the world today. By 2020, that number is expected to double. But how will citizens go about their daily lives when there’s constant gridlock? How will the quality of air change when we double how much oil we burn?

Cyclists are taking to the streets, demanding for safer bike lanes, and more focus on sustainable transport. The overall vision is a city that is removed from the car-centric models that are developed today. Will you join the revolution?

Eco-Film Series: Unlocking the Cage

Thursday March 9, 7-9pm

Venue: Film.Ca Cinemas – 171 Speers Rd.
Admission: $5/Adult $2/Student
Guest speaker: Dr. Jackie Prime founder of Prime Earth Education

Film Length: 91min
Unlocking the Cage follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented unlocking-the-cage-movie-posterchallenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans. After 30 years of struggling with ineffective animal welfare laws, Steve and his legal team, the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), are making history by filling the first lawsuits that seek to transform an animal from a “thing” with no rights to a “person” with legal protections.

Supported by affidavits from primatologists around the world, Steve maintains that, based on scientific evidence, cognitively complex animals such as chimpanzees, whales, dolphins and elephants have the capacity for limited person hood rights (such as bodily liberty) that would protect them from physical abuse. Using writs of habeas corpus (historically used to free humans from unlawful imprisonment), Wise argues on behalf of four captive chimpanzees in New York State.

Unlocking the Cage captures a monumental shift in our culture, as the public and judicial system show increasing receptiveness to Steve’s impassioned arguments. It is an intimate look at a lawsuit that could forever transform out legal system, and one man’s lifelong quest to protect “nonhuman” animals.
