Our film this month was made from footage taken on voyages of Greenpeace vessels from the beginning and brings us to current times. It’s the story of Greenpeace and especially how it was founded. We have two speakers from Greenpeace for the post-screening session.
Hope to see you there…

HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD

Unitarian Universalist Center 1187 Franklin Street @ Geary Blvd.
In 1971 a brave group of counter culture crew of scientists and hippie sailors set out on a mission to stop a nuclear test in the Aleutian Islands. This mission gave birth to the international organization known as Greenpeace.
In director Jerry Rothwell’s engrossing film, How To Change The World, we are given an inside view to motivations, inspirations, challenges and ultimate success of Greenpeace missions.
The film has been seven years in the making and using previously unseen original 16mm film footage and interviews from former and present members and the writing’s of founding member Robert Hunter as a backbone, we see the ecology movement through Greenpeace evolve on the scale of the Peace and Civil Rights Movements.
Free Admission (donations appreciated).
As usual, popcorn and other refreshments will also be available.
