The Green Party’s Delta South constituency association is launching GreenFlix, a series of topical documentary films with monthly screenings on Saturdays in the sanctuary of Ladner United Church.
The series begins on Sept. 22 with Economics of Happiness, a film that questions conventional assumptions about the benefits of a growing global economy.
Discover how false assumptions impact the quality of our lives and how localized economies are bringing greater happiness to many around the world.
There will be a facilitated discussion after the screening for those who choose to stay and explore how the film’s message can be applied in South Delta.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the film starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, but donations can be made on your way out. Half the donations will be given to the filmmakers.
The second film in the series will be Directly Affected, which will be screened on Oct. 20.
Released in May, Zack Embree’s film reveals the deeply compromised review process that led to government approval for the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion and the inspiring examples of individuals willing to put themselves in harm’s way to defend our coast and the planet.
Embree plans to be in attendance for an open discussion after the screening.
