CHIKYU FILMS 

This spring, we will feature a series of films, CHIKYU FILMS, which will share the stories and people who examine the close relationship to our environment, our earth, or Chikyu 地球 in Japanese.

FINAL STRAW

Friday March 15, 2019 2:00 PM  (second screening Monday April 15, 2019 6:30 PM)

Documentary by Patrick Lydon and Suhee Kang (2015) 74 minutes

Inspired by the works of Masanobu Fukuoka, author of the seminal environmental book The One Straw Revolution, the film weaves together meditative landscapes, and inspiring stories from some of the world’s foremost figures in the natural farming movement. Together they give modern-day relevance to age-old ideas about food, environmentalism, and happiness.

Following the screening, there will be a Q+A and discussion about the topics in the film.
