Film Screening, October 2015 – Voices of Transition

‘Voices of Transition’ will be screened at ‘The Secret Garden’ on William Street West, Galway on Monday 19th October starting at 7pm sharp.


The film is an enthusiastic documentary on farmers- and community-led responses to food insecurity in a scenario of climate change and peak oil.

VoicesDifferent ‘voices from the Transition’ are covered in this inspiring documentary: from organic, decentralised, community-supporting agriculture in Cuba; to agroforestry (edible forests) projects in France; to the Transition Towns movement in the UK. The film tell us of a future society where our deserts will once again be living soil, where fields will be introduced into our cities, and where independence from oil will help us to live a richer, more fulfilling life.
