Do The Maths - Melbourne Premiere Screening
LongPlay 318 St Georges Rd Fitzroy North VIC
In 2006, An Inconvenient Truth helped spark a new wave of concern about global warming. Now, our team here at 350.org is hoping to spark a new wave of not just concern, but action, with a new documentary called Do the Math about the growing movement to take on the fossil fuel industry.
The Do The Math documentary is a 42-minute film about the rising movement in the United States to change the terrifying maths of the climate crisis and challenge the fossil fuel industry. While it is set in the United States, the maths the film outlines apply globally -- making it important for all of us to watch. The trailer for the film can be viewed at http://act.350.org/signup/math-movie/
On May 16 2013 the film is premiering at synchronised events all over the world - with the Melbourne premiere at LongPlay 318 St. Georges Rd. Fitzroy 7.00pm. Please do not print your tickets - we will just check your name against the ticket list at the venue.
The film wil be followed by a Q&A session around what 350.org is doing in Australia in 2013 and how you can get involved with the movement.
The event will also feature the debut screening of a short clip highlighting the resilience of the Pacific Islander people in the face of rising sea levels threatening their very livelihoods.
You can also hear Bill McKibben, one of the world’s most respected and admired writers, speakers and activists on global warming and the founder of 350.org, talk in person in Melbourne on June 7, as part of his tour across Australia. Tickets for his talk are available at http://maths.350.org/australia/
