February movie night: “This Dewdrop World” connects individual death to planetary loss

February 10, 2015, 7-9 pm Movie Night: This Dewdrop World, an award-winning documentary that interweaves two unfolding stories: climate chaos and a filmmaker shocked by her mother’s ALS diagnosis. The planetary story mirrors the personal journey of learning how best to respond to rapid, catastrophic change.

“This precious jewel of a film opens us to inner resources for accepting and responding to the inevitability of climate change. It accomplishes this with heart-wrenching beauty, by interweaving two stories: that of the filmmaker’s mother facing her death by ALS, and that of . . . the realities of climate chaos. Each story brings exquisite teachings about how to tolerate impermanence . . . . I want everyone I know and do not know to be refreshed, nourished and emboldened by This Dewdrop World.”  

– Joanna Macy, author of Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy
