Sacrée Croissance Film Screening

Date: 
Friday, April 10, 2015 - 7:00pm

Just in time for Earth Day, Alliance Française invites you to rethink our growth based society and consider alternative solutions for a more sustainable future in a unique pair of events featuring the award winning documentarian Marie-Monique Robin and her newest film Sacrée Croissance (Good Old Growth). Alliance Française will screen the film on April 10 as part of its ongoing Ciné Club events. Return the following week on April 16 for an interactive webinar with the filmmaker.

Sacrée Croissance investigates the myth of growth as an indispensable engine of our society, highlighting alternatives to the societal default of being. Robin follows several individuals located throughout the world who feel compelled to escape the model of unlimited growth and regain control of their food production, energy, and money. These new ways of being operate within the limits of our planet and seek to provide ways to resolve threats like global warming and future financial crises.

The film will be presented in French with English subtitles. This event is free and open to the public.
