Screen 2: Up In Smoke (n/a)

Monday 16th April 2012

Doors and bar open 7pm, film starts 8pm

As a special Screen 2 we will be screening Up In Smoke, a documentary about the ground-breaking work of Lostwithiel ecologist Mike Hands. The film is 70 minutes long and will be followed by a Q&A session with Mike Hands.

Slash and burn farming generates more carbon emissions annually than all global aviation put together. It is one of the biggest contributors to deforestation and global warming. It sits at the crossroads of two of the greatest threats to global stability: accelerating climate change and diminishing food security.

Up In Smoke follows Mike Hands, who has laboured for 25 years to perfect a sustainable farming technique to replace slash and burn farming in equatorial rainforests. Mike Hands has the solution, but is the world ready to listen?

Up In Smoke will be shown on Monday 16th April, at the Church Rooms, Church Lane, Lostwithiel. Doors and bar open 7pm, film at 8pm. Tickets cost £4 for adults and £2 for under 18s, and are available online now or in advance from Watts Trading or on the door if not already sold out.
