Wasteland screening

The good folk at Ecoburbia, Tim and Shani, are moving one of their famous film nights from Hulbert Street to Wray Avenue.

This Friday, you can see the documentary Wasteland at the Replants nursery.

The Ecoburbia email advises:

Replants owner Bruce has created a beautiful space, with outside fireplace, kitchen and a large indoor room for the screening, so let’s trial it this month and see if we like it

To pay for the venue we have to charge $5 to come to the movie, but we think this is still great value!

Bruce and Joanie have offered to cook a meal for anyone who would like to come early. The meal will be $10.

So please come at 6.30pm and share a meal (BYO or pay $10 for a vego cook up). The movie ($5 charge) will start at 7.15pm

More details about the movie below:

Filmed over nearly three years, Wasteland follows renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world’s largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores” – or self designated pickers of recyclable materials. However his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the caradores as they begin to reimagine their lives.

6.30 vegetarian meal for $10 Movie cost $5

It’d be great to see loads of locals at this event after the March of the Lanterns Earth Hour event we staged using reclaimed and recycled materials (NB: we’re still working on that blog entry!!).

While you’re at it, if you’re on Facebook, consider liking the Ecoburbia page to stay up to date with wonderful sustainability things taking place in other areas of Fremantle.
