Movie Nights on Manitoulin

home page Next movie gathering: Saturday, October 16 at 6:30 pm, The Need to Grow. With an estimated 60 years of farmable soil left on Earth, this new film offers an intimate look into the hearts of activists and innovators in the food movement: an 8 year old girl challenges the ethics of a beloved organization: a renegade farmer struggles to keep his land as he revolutionizes resource efficient agriculture; and an accomplished visionary inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology.

Narrated by Rosario Dawson (Marvel’s The Defenders, The Lego Batman Movie), TNTG delivers alarming evidence on the importance of healthy soil - revealing not only the potential of localized food production working with nature, but our opportunity as individuals to help regenerate our planet’s dying soils and participate in the restoration of the Earth.

As usual in winter, the optional potluck will start around 5:30 pm. See below the calendar for more details about Movies that Matter.

Future movie nights at HBFT will show up on the Resilient Manitoulin calendar (a Google Calendar that you can add to your own, if you have one.)
