Screening of "Disruption" at Bernardsville Library
Join us at Bernardsville Public Library on Sunday, January 25 at 2:00 pm for a free screening of “Disruption,” a fast-paced cinematic journey through the wild world of climate change: the science, the politics, the solutions, and the stories that define this crisis at this pivotal point in human history.
The movie, produced and directed by Kelly Nyks and Jared P. Scott, explains that we are living through an age of tipping points and rapid social and planetary change. We are the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it, according to the producers. The film enlarges the issue beyond climate impacts and makes a compelling call for bold action that is strong enough to tip the balance to build a clean energy future.
"Disruption" takes an unflinching look at the devastating consequences of inaction. This exploration lays bare "the terrifying science, the shattered political process, the unrelenting industry special interests and the civic stasis that have brought us to this social, moral and ecological crossroads." The film also takes viewers behind the scenes of the efforts to organize the largest climate rally in the history of the planet during the UN world climate summit.
The movie is about an hour long and there is no charge to attend. Advance sign-up is requested. Register online at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
