SEA’s Environmental Film Festival @ Riverhouse Inn Theatre
May 5 @ 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

As part of SEA’s 25th Anniversary, we are showing a series of environmental films at the Riverhouse Inn Theatre in Montague. 

On Friday, May 5, we will have two feature presentations:

‘Savior Seeds’  Genetically modified seeds have been planted around the world and hailed as a solution to global hunger. But these crops have also sparked heated protest. Isobel Yeung traces the path of these super-crops from the headquarters of American agribusiness titan Monsanto to the soy fields of Paraguay, and visits the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, high in the Arctic, to see what’s truly at stake when humans try to improve on nature.

Meat Hooked!  The world is addicted to meat. In developing countries around the world, diets are starting to look more like America’s, incorporating more and more beef and pork. Massive factory farms are springing up to supply that demand, but industrial meat operations produce more than just cheap T-bones – they also dish out enormous environmental harm. Isobel Yeung travels to the feedlots, farms and slaughterhouses where meat is made, to see the true costs of our burger habit. The World Health Organization has classified meat as a class 1 carcinogen. So meat is now viewed — at least by this organization and some scientists — to be as harmful as tobacco, diesel exhaust and asbestos.

Doors will open at 6:30; showtime is at 7:00. Following the film there will be a 30-45 minute discussion, with an invited speaker, on issues highlighted in the documentary and their relation to PEI.

During the event a licensed bar service will be available. Admission is $10. All 19 and older are welcome to join us.
