08.09.2012 Upcoming Documentary Screenings

Thursday, August 9th, 7:00 PM

Conscientious Projector will present Call of Life: Facing the Mass Extinction.

One of the most under-reported news stories of the day is the alarming rate of species extinction now taking place around the world, from 1,000 to 10,000 times faster than previously normalexpectations, and potentially resulting in the loss of over half of all plant and animal species within the next few decades.

Call of Life: Facing the Mass Extinction is the first feature documentary to examine this growing threat to biodiversity and Earth’s life support systems. It also looks beyond the immediate causes of the crisis to consider how our cultural and economic systems, along with deep-seated psychological and behavioral patterns, have allowed this situation to develop and continue to reinforce it.

A community discussion follows the film.

The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.

Meet like minded folks at the community screening and post film discussion.

In addition there is a FREE Summer Film Series hosted by CP at All Saints Church, 130 No Euclid, Pasadena.

The upcoming films are
