What: Urban Roots - Green Screens Monthly Screening Series
Bookmark and Share
 
 
When: Wednesday, February 1, 2012 ::PAST EVENT::
 
 
Organization:   Planet in Focus & The NFB
 Where: NFB Mediatheque, 150 John St., Toronto, ON
 More Info:   We are proud to announce that director Mark MacInnis’ Urban Roots will screen at our monthly screening series on Wednesday, February 1 at the NFB Mediatheque, 150 John St. at 7pm.

Directed by: Mark MacInnis | 93 minutes | USA | English | Rated G |

Against a sprawling backdrop of boarded-up shops, empty lots and defunct factories, seeds of change have taken root in Motor City. Directed by Detroit-native Mark MacInnis and produced by The 11th Hour’s Leila Conners, Urban Roots looks at the social, economic and environmental factors—as well as the dedicated residents—that cultivated an urban farming revolution amid the debris of America’s collapsed automotive powerhouse.

A testament to the power of grassroots transformation, Urban Roots tells a compelling story about claiming independence from our reliance on commercial industries.

Join us for provocative and entertaining Canadian and international films about the state of our planet at the NFB’s theatre at the corner of Richmond and John Street. All screenings will be followed by a discussion. Screenings will take place the first Wednesday of every month at the NFB Mediatheque (150 John Street, Toronto).

Brought to you by Planet in Focus, Canada’s leading environmental media arts organization and the National Film Board of Canada, breaking ground in interactive works, social-issue documentaries, auteur animation and alternative dramas for over 70 years.
