Sacrée Croissance Webinar with Marie-Monique Robin

Date: 
Thursday, April 16, 2015 - 6:30pm

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). Following the screening of the film at Alliance Française on April 10, an interactive webinar with Robin will take place on April 16 as part of the Marianne Midwest speaker series, which strives to bring together American and French points of view on contemporary global topics. The webinar will be broadcast live from Chicago and presented in English, or French with English translation. This event is free and open to the public.

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.
