Auckland Indymedia GE-FREE Film Fundraiser

Event Notice: THE ANTIDOTE # 3

An Auckland Indymedia GE-FREE Film Fundraiser

Wednesday 27th August - 7:00pm start

@ Alleluya Café, St. Kevin’s Arcade, 183 K'Rd $5 waged/$3 unwaged

An evening of independent documentaries on genetic engineering in response to the lapsing of the moratorium on the release of genetically modified organisms.

FEATURING:

KIA TUPATO Documentary short by local filmmaker Michelle McGregor exploring Maori views on the environment and genetic engineering through interviews with the late Sir John Turei. (11 mins.)

The LEECH and the EARTHWORM Indigenous peoples voice their views on Western science, its vision of a genetically engineered future, and its deep links with corporate profits and globalisation. "The Leech and the Earthworm" is a journey that combines passionate critiques of a future threatened by genetic engineering and representations of living alternatives to a globalised monoculture with stunning visuals and music from around the world. The "Leech and the Earthworm" is a provocative film that inspires us to ask serious questions of the collective illusion we call 'progress'." (68 mins.)

STOP THE CROP Produced by Undercurrents UK. A short documentary of a direct action event in the UK in which a genetically modified crop was pulled up in protest to the sowing of GMOs. A portent of things to come. (7mins.)

HOMEGROWN Homegrown profiles the use of successful alternatives to the use of BT maize in Kenya and the reaction of the biotech companies to this use of cheap, natural alternatives to genetic engineering. (8 mins.)

The upcoming screening on the 27th August is the third such screening organised by Auckland Indymedia and is part of our aim to provide a regular forum for alternative political documentaries and media art.

    Gordon Campbell: On The Peters/Ardern Triumph

    There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

    Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

    Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
