Nov 12 FFE Eco-Film “Ecosophia: Ecological Wisdom” via Zoom

View & discuss the film “Ecosophia: Ecological Wisdom” with us!
The Film:

Register here today to join the Sisters and other Franciscans For Earth on Tuesday, November 12, 2024, at 6:30 pm Central via Zoom, for a free screening and discussion of the film “Ecosophia: Ecological Wisdom.”

According to the Bullfrog Films website, this 2023 documentary by Australian filmmaker Peter Charles Downey is a collection of thoughts as “some of the wisest ecological minds come together for an honest appraisal of our civilization without greenwash.” Ecosophia—a term first used by French philosopher Félix Guttari and deep ecologist Arne Naess—means ecological wisdom. ECOSOPHIA explores the interrelationship between energy, the economy, resources, population, psychology, spirituality, the biosphere, the limits to growth and climate change in an honest appraisal of our civilization and sustainability.

A simpler world is coming, and what’s needed is as much a spiritual revolution as a physical one. Footage of environmental calamity, natural wonder, and urban sprawl illustrate the scientific analysis and philosophical insights of a host of featured interviewees including: Prof Tim Barrett, Stephen Jenkinson, B. Sid Smith, Prof William Rees, Prof Ian Lowe, Morag Gamble, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Prof Stuart Hill, Prof Will Steffen, Prof John Gowdy, Prof William Ophuls, Bobbi Allan, Alnoor Ladha, Whaia Whaea, Mindahi Bastida, Rocky Dawuni, Victor Pires and Randy Hayes.

The film was featured as part of the San Pedro International Film Festival.
