30 June – The 4th Revolution

4thRevFinalManchester Film Co-operative invites you to a screening of the new documentary film, The 4th Revolution – Energy Autonomy.

The film develops the compelling vision of a global community whose energy supply is fed by 100 percent renewable energy sources. It visualizes a global restructuring in which power relationships are decentralized and capital is more equitably distributed.

On the one hand you have the corporations, which hang on to the privilege they enjoy over the distribution and use of the energy supply. On the other hand are the inventors, politicians and visionaries; people who dream of an independent, decentral and highly technical energy production – and they have long since developed it. Politicians, activists, scientists, mid-wives who come from the most diverse backgrounds and set the most varying of goals: positions in the battle to provide the energy supply for tomorrow.They represent hope for the two billion in the world who do not have access to electricity, but they also offer hope to those in the Northern Hemisphere, who increasingly suffer from the results of a seemingly unteachable fossil-energy-based economy.

The prominent protagonists in this documentary stand for a growing group of people, for whom the awareness of the importance of a democratization of the energy supply has become clear. They encourage people to become active themselves and not give up in the face of the power whose interests must be taken to task. The transformation of the world as we know it begins with each person.

The screening will also have a panel with speakers from Greater Manchester Community Renewables and Tyndall Centre for Climate Research, along with other local renewable energy experts.

Time: Doors at 7pm, screening begins at 7:30pm.
