Do The Maths - Sydney premiere screening
16 May 7.00pm Redfern Town Hall
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 Sydney premiere at Redfern Town Hall at 7.00pm. Please do not print your tickets - we will just check your name against the ticket list at the venue.
The film will be preceeded by a short talk about 350.org by John Collee, screenwriter of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Happy Feet, and Creation, and followed by a QnA session moderated by John around what 350.org is doing in Australia in 2013 and how you can get involved with the movement.
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 Sydney on June 4, as part of his tour across Australia. Tickets for his talk are available at http://maths.350.org/australia/
