The Online Premiere of ‘In Transition’. Saturday May 23rd 2009, 1.45pm (GMT)
In Transition: from oil dependency to local resilience. A Film.
We are delighted to announce the near-launch of ‘In Transition’, the hour-long documentary about Transition. The film is the work of director Emma Goude, with production by Smith and Watson, and with input from Transition communities around the world (for the story of the film, click here. For those of you who felt the Age of Stupid only told one half of the story, here is the other half. It tells the story of the generation that looked peak oil and climate change square in the face, and responded with creativity, compassion and genius. We think you’re going to love it. Here is the trailer…
In the film you will see the stories of communities creating their own currencies, setting up their own pubs, planting trees, growing food. You’ll see local authorities getting behind their local Transition initiatives, and get a sense of the scale of this emerging movement. It is a story of hope, and it is a call to action.
The first chance to see the film will be on Saturday May 23rd at 1.45pm, with the premiere of the film at the Transition Network Conference 2009 at the Battersea Arts Centre in London. However, this event is now sold out, and many of you weren’t able to make it anyway, so at the same time as the film is being shown in Battersea, it will also be streamed live online here (there’s nothing there yet, but just wanted to make sure you have the link. You will be able to leave comments and thoughts once you have seen it. It will be released on DVD later in the year, with lots and lots of extras.
Please help us spread the word! Post this trailer on your blogs, tell people about the premiere, Twitter it, spread it around.
