Movie: A Silent Transformation
March 25th, 8pm, Luna Outdoor
A Silent Transformation is a film that sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of diverse communities across the Province of Ontario, which by addressing their needs collectively are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation. In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity and a new popular movement to transform society! Will it grow and flourish?

The Transitions Film Festival showcases groundbreaking documentaries about the social and technological innovations, revolutionary ideas & trailblazing change makers that are leading the way to a better world.
