SustainFloyd Film Series
Since 2011 SustainFloyd has been showing a series of documentary films relating to our mission. It’s one way to get enliven the local discussion of issues relating to securing a sustainable future.
Our film committee considers ideas for films submitted by board and community members and tries to offer documentaries covering a wide rage of topics. Typically we show 6 films a year, 3 in the spring and three in the fall, each designed as the basis of a community gathering and discussion. Our hope is that these events offer ideas and hope of ways that both individuals and community groups can make an impact.
Spring 2018 Film Series
The first film of our 2018 Spring series is Seed on February 22nd at 6PM.
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind, these subtle flecks of life are the source of all existence. Like tiny time capsules, they contain the songs, sustenance, memories, and medicines of entire cultures. They feed us, clothe us, and provide the raw materials for our everyday lives. In a very real
sense, they are life itself.
Join us for this incredibly important film about seeds and the importance they hold for us every day.
As many irreplaceable seeds near extinction, SEED reveals the harrowing and heartening story of passionate seed keepers as they wage a David and Goliath battle against chemical seed companies, defending a 12,000 year food legacy.
The film will be screened at The Floyd Country Store (203 Locust St.) and doors open at 6PM for a potluck with neighbors and friends. We hope to see you there!
