Venue: Central Library

Monday, November 2, 6:30pm – Central Branch Library, rm. 301

(2014, directors: Keegan Kuhn and Kip Andersen) COWSPIRACY: THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. Animal agriculture is 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. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

The Radical Imagination Project is delighted to be once again partnering with Cinema Politica and the Central Branch of the Halifax Public Library to curate a series of provocative documentary films to Halifax from September to December 2015. These films focus on key contemporary issues and will be followed by moderated discussions.

All screenings are free and open to the public.
