The film Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is being shown on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, 1825 East Street, Redding CA.
If you watched the recent Oscar awards, you already know about Leonardo DiCaprio’s commitment to the environment. But did you know that Cowspiracy is the groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary from Executive Producer DiCaprio. The film follows intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.
“Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.”
“As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.”
Admission is free. There will be a brief discussion and opportunity for Q/A immediately following the film. For more information on this film screening contact Peggy Rebol at 530-243-2403.
