FREE FILM SCREENING — Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Tuesday, February 26, 6:00 p.m.

Woodstock Town Hall Theatre

Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is in one of the most remote places on earth. And yet it has become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, syphoning plastics from three distant continents. In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun travels on a personal journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Along the way she meets scientists, researchers, influencers and volunteers who shed light on the effects of our rabid plastic consumption and learns the problem is more insidious than we could have imagined.

Join Pentangle Arts Council and Sustainable Woodstock for a monthly documentary film screening as part of our Climate Change and Sustainability series, which usually takes place on the 4th Tuesday of every month.

Free admission. (Recommended donation of $10.) Donations go to support Pentangle Arts.

FREE FILM SCREENING — More Than Honey

Tuesday, March 26, 6:00 p.m.

Woodstock Town Hall Theatre

80% of plant species require bees to be pollinated. Without the pollinization provided by bees, many fruits and vegetables could disappear from the face of the Earth. Depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. Everywhere, the same scenario is repeated: billions of bees leave their hives, never to return. No bodies are found in the immediate surroundings, and no visible predators can be located. Scientists have found a name for the phenomenon that matches its scale, “colony collapse disorder.”

Join Pentangle Arts Council and Sustainable Woodstock for a monthly documentary film screening as part of our Climate Change and Sustainability series, which usually takes place on the 4th Tuesday of every month.

Free admission. (Recommended donation of $10.) Donations go to support Pentangle Arts.

FREE FILM SCREENING —Wasted: The Story of Food Waste

Tuesday, April 23, 6:00 p.m.

Woodstock Town Hall Theatre

WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura and Danny Bowien, audiences see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change. It shows us how each of us can make small changes—all of them delicious—to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

Join Sustainable Woodstock for some complimentary Worthy eats and a discussion with Simon Dennis about the Center for Transformational Practice (CTP) organization and center, and discover ways to help/join/participate in this “Transformational Movement.”

The need for a new type of thinking to address many of our societal challenges, led to the creation of the Center for Transformational Practice (CTP), in White River Jct. “Their insights and efforts are now surfacing with a breadth and frequency suggestive of a budding social movement. For lack of a better term, let us call it the Transformational Movement…Many of the skills and techniques of the transformational movement simultaneously advance personal and societal transformation.” –CTP website

FREE FILM SCREENING — Surviving Progress

Tuesday, June 25, 6:00 p.m.

Woodstock Town Hall Theatre

 

SURVIVING PROGRESS presents the story of human advancement as awe-inspiring and double-edged. It reveals the grave risk of running the 21st century’s software—our know-how—on the ancient hardware of our primate brain, which hasn’t been upgraded in 50,000 years. Primatologist Jane Goodall, author Margaret Atwood, and activists from the Congo, Canada, and USA, place their hope in our ingenuity and moral evolution.

Surviving Progress leaves us with a challenge: To prove that making apes smarter was not an evolutionary dead-end.

Join Pentangle Arts Council and Sustainable Woodstock for a monthly documentary film screening as part of our Climate Change and Sustainability series, which usually takes place on the 4th Tuesday of every month.

Free admission. (Recommended donation of $10.) Donations go to support Pentangle Arts.
