The Green Film Series continues it's fall season on Monday, October 27 with the film Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret  at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse. A second showing is scheduled for Wednesday, October 29 in Sechelt at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall. The Wood Duck Bus is scheduled to bring Pender Harbour residents to the screening in Sechelt.

This shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet. Follow an intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers one of the most destructive industries facing the planet today.

As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he discovers they are unwillling to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.

Animal agriculture, 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.

Learn about some simple, powerful ways to mitigate these devastating impacts following the film. Join the discussion/Q&A with  Gerry Pageau, B.A.Sc., P.Eng., M.Eng., Dave Shishkoff, long time environmental activist, editor The Victoria Vegan and Joanna Zilsel, permaculture gardener, bee keeper, M.Sc. Biology.
