Eco-Film Fest presents Revolution April 10

The Fast Forward Eco-Film Fest will feature Revolution, a documentary that has received critical acclaim.

The 90-minute film follows the real-life adventures of Canadian biologist, photographer, conservationist and filmmaker Rob Stewart, well known for his film Sharkwater (2007).

In an effort to uncover the truth and find the secret to saving the ecosystems humans depend on for survival, Stewart embarks on a life-threatening adventure.

From the coral reefs in Papua New Guinea and deforestation in Madagascar to the largest and most destructive environmental project in history in Alberta, he reveals that all human actions are interconnected and that environmental degradation, species loss, ocean acidification, pollution and food/water scarcity are reducing the Earth’s ability to house humans.

Travelling the globe to meet with individuals and organizations working on a solution, Stewart finds encouragement and hope, pointing to the revolutions of the past and how humans have evolved and changed course in times of necessity.

Revolution won Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Atlantic Film Fest, Most Popular Environmental Film Award at the Vancouver International Film Fest, and was a runner up People’s Choice Award Documentary and the most popular Canadian film at its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The film will be shown on April 10 as part of the 4th Annual Fast Forward Eco-Film Festival put on by the Climate Change Action Group of Erin and Transition Erin Film Festival Working Group.

It takes place at the Erin Legion, 12 Dundas Street East, doors open at 6:30 and the show begins at 7pm. Admission is free and the film is sponsored by Treehaven Natural Foods.
