The Houston Green Film Series partners present In Transition 2.0.
This is the Houston premiere of the movie!
"In Transition 2.0 is an inspirational immersion in the Transition movement, gathering stories from around the world of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. You’ll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food everywhere, localising their economies and setting up community power stations. It’s an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world that is awash with gloom, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of growing vegetables in unexpected places."
"Transition 2.0 is out! Phillip Moore finds it compelling, with a stronger narrative than its predecessor, and full of inspiring stories from many continents about what is perhaps the fastest growing social experiment in the world...When Transition 1.0 was released in late 2009 the world felt like a darker place...Over three years later Transition 1.0 has transformed into Transition 2.0 – a slicker, more economical manifestation of its former self. Transition is a process after all – not a fixed state. In a world of uncertainty Transition 2.0 not only entertains but offers the viewer stories of hope and resilience. A vital strand in any response to peak oil, climate chaos and economic instability."
