Tomorrow - award-winning environmental film

In its mid-June, Sonoma Valley premier, the film TOMORROW was received by
an enthusiastic audience of over 100 locals at Burlingame Hall (on the
campus of First Congregational Church) with many requesting another
showing. Roger Rhoten responded positively to the request, and, after
viewing the film, arranged for a special, one-night-only, screening at
Sebastiani Theatre on Monday, August 21st at 6:30 pm.

Bucking the trend of many doom-and-gloom, present-day environmental films,
TOMORROW, is “without question… absolutely the best film on the future of
humanity and the environment.” says entrepreneur, environmentalist Paul
Hawken. The feature-length film (named Demain, in its international
version), produced by a pair of French notables, won the best documentary
film award at the Césars (the French version of the Oscars) in 2016, and
has received numerous other awards at film festivals around the world.

The SF Chronical called the film “a generous cut above the standard
enviro-doc,” while the LA Times said it a “forward-thinking take on
addressing the demise of the human race.” The film “sets out to showcase
alternative and creative ways of viewing agriculture, economics, energy and
education”

From TOMORROW’s website synopsis, the wide-ranging stories displayed in the
film from various communities around the globe show that the answers to the
environmental crisis facing the planet “lie in a wide mobilization of the
human race” to offset the powerlessness that so many are feeling about the
myriad problems facing humanity today. Furthermore, “TOMORROW is not just a
film, it is the beginning of a movement seeking to encourage local
communities around the world to change the way they live for the sake of
our planet.”

The screening event is sponsored by Transition Sonoma Valley and The
Sebastiani Theatre Foundation; $10 admission fee, all are welcome!
