“It’s 3:23 in the morning and I’m awake because my great great grandchildren won’t let me sleep. My great great grandchildren ask me in dreams what did you do while the planet was plundered what did you do when the earth was unraveling, surely you did something…” – Drew Dellinger
Come see this hope-filled documentary film, filled with the wisdom of people, mostly younger, who see the wounds being revealed all around the world and are actively engaged in healing the planet in their own inspired way.
Dancing with the Cannibal Giant is a 45-minute film that captures five remarkable stories of people and places that are transforming the world. It follows the work and inspiration of people like Leah Penniman of Soul Fire Farm, Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman of Climbing Poetree , and Gillian Kapteyn and Russell Comstock of Metta Earth Institute. It is a regional film (the Upper Valley, Maine and upstate New York) as the filmmakers believe in the power of place and the distinct nature of place to evoke stories unique to that location… and meaningful to the people who are grounded in place and community.
The film screening will be followed by a discussion designed to move us beyond disempowerment and despair, into spaces of action and hope. We’ll have some light desserts.
