Film as a galvanizing global tool took another step forward with the screening of In Transition: From Oil Dependency to Local Resilience, the story of the global Transition Movement, which has its roots in Totnes, Devon.
Premiered on Wednesday (September 9), at the Barn Cinema, Dartington, the film was also being shown at eight cinemas in New Zealand and at least another 20 venues in the UK.
Taking that home-grown, locally produced ethos into the film, it was directed by Emma Goude for Totnes-based production company Smith and Watson.
Rob Hoskins, co-founder of the Transition Movement, presented the film, and asks on the Transititon Culture site: “Were you at a screening, or did you organise one? Do tell us your stories of your first screening.
“Over September and October we are hoping to get as many public screenings of the film held as possible.”
An earlier version of the film was screened in Totnes in May in to sell out audiences. The latest batch of screenings, which end tonight (Friday, September 11), have been part of the Totnes Festival.
