Divide in Concord: Free Public Film Screening
April 11, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us as we kick off our Recycling & Zero Waste Working Forum with a free public screening of the film DIVIDE IN CONCORD!
Divide in Concord is an award-winning feature-length documentary that follows the entertaining tale of the battle of banning bottled water in small town America.
In 1775, Concord patriots fired the infamous ‘shot heard round the world’ that began a Revolution and defined a nation. Now a local eighty-four year-old woman has waged another seemingly unwinnable battle. For three years Jean Hill has been trying to rid the town of single-serve plastic bottles of water. Complete with strong opposition from local merchants and the bottled water industry, Jean is once again leading the controversial crusade.
In the same town that incited the American Revolution and inspired Thoreau’s environmental movement, can one senior citizen make history? A tense nail-biter of a vote will decide.
Doors and reception open at 6:30 pm, light snacks will be provided.
This free public event is the kick-off to the Recycling & Zero Waste Working Forum, April 12 and 13 at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre.
