“To the Ends of the Earth”
When: Friday the 13th (of July) 7:00pm
It’s better to watch a scary movie together!
Where: Scott Hall, First Parish Church,
24 Vernon Street, Framingham
Pizza & popcorn will be sold, as well as whole cakes, pies, breads and other goodies, to benefit 350Mass.
This award-winning documentary, narrated by academy-award winning actress Emma Thompson, tells the story of our time: Post ‘peak oil’ we depend on “unconventional” fossil fuels like tar sands and fracked gas. The film explains how we got here, what it is doing to our environment, and where we need to go instead. (additional film details below)

More About To the Ends of the Earth
To the Ends of the Earth (2016) is an award-winning feature documentary about the state of our energy system today. The film takes us on a trip to the dark places of extreme energy extraction that fuel our addiction to fossil fuels – from an Inuit village in Canada’s high Arctic to the Tar sands of Alberta – and explains why our fossil fueled lifestyle is ecologically and economically unsustainable. The film brings forward the voices of those whose livelihoods are being destroyed in the process, as well as those who envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead.

The 350 Massachusetts MetroWest node is a gathering of those who want to learn more about the causes of and remedies for climate change as well as having the option to support the following local initiatives: divesting from fossil fuel equities, carbon pollution pricing, and support for renewable energy resources and infrastructure. This node is part of the organization 350 Massachusetts for a Better Future. The public meetings are usually the first Thursday of the month, with a rotation of locations in our region. All are encouraged to join the subgroup meetings for the initiatives, as well as the planning group, which meets separately.
