The movie that started it all; Fantastic Fungi was the very first film we showed at a Sustainability Now Hang Out and Movie Night was born. We thought it was time to revisit this remarkable classic.
Join us for this inspiring exploration of the magical world of fungi: from mushrooms that clear oil spills to underground fungal networks that help trees communicate. It’s a descriptive time-lapse journey about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago. Truly a remarkable film!
See you Thursday! ~Mira and Scott

Breaking Boundaries tells the story of the most important scientific discovery of our time – that humanity has pushed Earth beyond the boundaries that have kept Earth stable for 10,000 years, since the dawn of civilization. The 75-minute film takes the audience on a journey of discovery of planetary thresholds we must not exceed, not just for the stability of our planet, but for the future of humanity. It offers up the solutions we can and must put in place now if we are to protect Earth’s life support systems.

How Fracking Got Banned in New York with Helen Holden Slottje, 2014 Goldman Prize Recipient North America
In 2014, American lawyer and activist, Helen Slottje received the largest environmental prize in the world, the Goldman Environmental Prize also known as the Green Nobel. For 10 years, Helen worked tirelessly in the face of fierce opposition from the fossil fuel industry, and colleagues who called her work criminal, to get fracking banned in more than 170 New York communities. She accomplished what others deemed impossible through dogged determination and visionary thinking that enabled her to challenge consensus reality and win.
