2/15 Film Showing in Arcata - END: CIV - Exposing the Ecological and Social Disaster of Industrial Civilization

Our planet is in crisis. Every ecosystem is collapsing. Another 120 species will go extinct today. And the carbon level keeps rising. For years, writer Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences, "Do you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life?" No one ever says yes.

In END: CIV, filmmaker Franklin Lopez explores Jensen’s work, exposing the accelerating ecological and social disaster that is industrial civilization—and the environmental movement’s refusal to face the scale of the crisis. Through interviews with Jensen and other radical activists, END: CIV makes the case that industrial civilization is incompatible with life. Technology can't fix it, and shopping—no matter how green—won’t stop it. To save this planet, we need a serious resistance movement that can bring down the industrial economy. END: CIV is, finally, a call to act as if we truly love this planet.

The event is February 15, 2011, in the BSS Native Forum, Room 162, BSS Building, Union St., H.S.U Campus. The event starts at 6:30 and is free.

The evening will also feature a talk by Arcata writer Lierre Keith who will be speaking on “Political Strategy and the Principles of Militant Resistance.”

Franklin Lopez, Derrick Jensen, and Lierre Keith are all available for interviews. They can be contacted at tours@derrickjensen.org or 707-502-0550.
