A Documentary – “INHABIT” A Permaculture Perspective

Inhabitsave the date!

INHABIT
Tuesday, June 7th at 7:30pm

co-presented by

Slow Food North Shore  & The Cinema Arts Centre

“Let’s Eat: Food on Film Series”

Includes a Q&A with Costa Boutsikaris – the Director, Cinematographer & Editor,  and a permaculture inspired reception prepared by us!

PURCHASE TICKETS

Inhabit is a feature length documentary detailing permaculture: a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics, governance, and on. The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what’s possible – what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.
(USA, 2015, 92 min., DCP | Dir. Costa Boutsikaris)
