Delta South Greens to screen environmental films

The Delta South Riding Association of the BC Greens will be hosting a summer series of films at Ladner United Church.

“We’ve lined up some really entertaining and inspiring new films by local filmmakers,” says riding association president Larry Colero. “Our first documentary, The Radicals, uses breathtaking cinematography to tell the story of four B.C. snowboarders and surfers driven to protect the natural environments where they play. The film was sold out at festivals last winter.”

Colero describes their second film, Toad People, as a “touchingly sweet yet infuriating story about humans, owls and amphibians in Chilliwack, and the inspired community-led movement to save an endangered species.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the films start at 7 p.m. at Ladner United Church, 4960-48th Ave. The Radicals will screen on June 22 and Toad People will follow on July 6.

Anyone can just drop in and admission is by donation. Half of all proceeds go to the filmmakers. More information and trailers are at GreenFlix.ca or contact the association at dls@bcgreens.ca.
