Earth-Friendly Documentary Showing in Falmouth

Arise, a portrait of women across the world, will be shown Sunday, March 9 from 4 to 6 p.m.

“Arise,” an Earth-friendly documentary, will be shown Sunday, March 9, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Falmouth Museums on the Green Education Center, 65 Palmer Ave., Falmouth.

Residents are invited to take in “Arise,” an award-winning documentary that honors the courage and commitment of women inspiring a global shift in environmental values – one community at a time.

"Arise" is a portrait of women across the world who share a profound understanding of what it takes to live in greater harmony with the Earth. It shows women establishing restorative seed banks, transforming dumps into city parks, engaging in permaculture planting, converting waste into fuel in a school to power kitchen stoves.  The film is made by mother-and-daughter duo Lori Joyce and Caddice Orlando, and narrated by actress Daryl Hannah.

The screening will be followed by a community discussion on sustainability and growing food closer to home. Everyone is welcome to bring their ideas and questions--farmers, backyard growers, shellfishers, farm supporters, cooks, parents, kids and teachers, anyone who eats and cares about the environment! Light refreshments. Free and open to all.

“Arise” is a special event at the Falmouth Museums on the Green during International Women's History Month.

The event is coordinated by the Falmouth Climate Action Team and the Falmouth Farmers’ Market. Supporters include Coonamessett Farm, Citizens for Economic and Ecological Sustainability and The Green Center, and Cape and Islands Self Reliance.
