'Beyond the Tipping Point' - 29th September 2010
On the last Wednesday of every month, a community film night is held in St Brides School, in Craigie street, Govanhill. This month 'Beyond the Tipping Point' is being shown.
Beyond the Tipping Point? is a film about climate change and the ways we respond to it. Through the voices of 25 people from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities, the film addresses a fundamental challenge for our time: how the future is imagined, and how this imagination shapes our actions in the present.
This is not another film about the science or the ‘facts’ of global warming. It is an exploration of a deeper set of questions. How do we make sense of the idea that we may have a limited time frame for effective action? Is there ever a point after which all action comes too late? Does apocalyptic imagination lead to hope, or despair?
The film starts at 7pm at St Brides Primary School, Craigie Street, off Allison St, Govanhill/Strathbungo.
