That’s right, for Go Green Week, Eden Cinemas will be going Green on Screen to showcase several different environmental films to the public free of charge. This is being done in a bid to raise awareness about the ongoing impacts of climate change.
A €1 donation will also be collected per person to go towards a green fund, which will then be used to finance green projects aimed at giving back to the community – such as tree plantings.
A total of 6 movies will be shown throughout Green Week, including Leonardo DiCaprio’s Before The Flood, which focuses on global warming as DiCaprio travels the globe to witness the effects of an impending environmental disaster. Through observing ancient melting glaciers and levelled Indonesian tropical forests, DiCaprio unearths the global dependence on fossil fuels, even visiting President Obama for an interview.
And if you need another movie to convince you about the realities of climate change, Eden Cinemas will also be showing I am Greta. The film follows young Thunberg, who started school striking for the climate to show politicians that if they don’t care about her future, then neither should she.
The Arctic: Our Last Great Wilderness and Extreme Weather will also make its debut, illustrating some of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles. The Arctic National Wildlife refuge, situated in the northeastern corner of Alaska, is the wildest place left in North America. This marks the first-ever cinematic account of this little-known land where people can experience a world untouched by time.
There will also be Happy Feet for the little ones, which tells the tale of a little penguin named Mumble who has a terrible singing voice and discovers he has no Heartsong. Although Mumble has one thing that the other penguins don’t – a talent for tap dancing – he may never find true love without a Heartsong. The stern leader of Emperor Land ends up casting him out of the community and away from home, Mumble must embark on a new adventure.
Lastly, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power will also be shown, a follow-up documentary that addresses the progress made to tackle climate change thus far; as well as Al Gore’s global efforts to persuade world leaders to invest in renewable energy.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, Eden Cinemas is currently operating at a limited capacity and is implementing all the health measures advised into place.
