New Display: The Time is NOW

This selection of films highlights the far reaching consequences of the historical decisions and the current actions of large industries. Decades of over-consumption, continuous production and exploitation of the land has led to the near decimation of many of our natural landscapes. Most of the films transport the viewer to a different location, weaving a generally woeful narrative and showing us the ramifications of our collective activities.

However, all hope is not lost in humanity. Taking Root is a prime example of a glimmer of hope and shows that there are still opportunities for change. Meaningful change is the only way for a viable future but time is of the essence. Thus, the time is now.
