“Surviving Progress” concludes the environmental film series at 19 on the Park in Stouffville on April 17

Adapted from Ronald Wright’s book A Short History of Progress, the film “Surviving Progress” was an official selection at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. The film challenges us to live within the real limits that our planet gives us. 

Reesor’s is proud to be the production sponsor for the showing of this film along with the Whitchurch-Stouffville Energy Cooperative.  We’ll also be providing tastes of some of our local Ontario specialties after the film and discussion.

“Surviving Progress” presents the story of human advancement revealing how civilizations are repeatedly destroyed by “progress traps” — alluring technologies serving immediate needs, but ransoming the future. 

 Join us in viewing this insightful film that will inspire you!  Together we can make a difference!

Thursday, April 17 from 7-8:30pm at 19 on the Park, Stouffville. Tickets are $7.50 or $5.00 for  Energy Cooperative and Starlight Cinema members.
