We are screening “What are we waiting for?” one more time in Kommunales Kino! The movie was the opening movie of last year’s Greenmotions Filmfestival and was selected as the best movie by the audiences. At the end of the movie, there will be discussion with the director of the movie Marie-Monique Robin, Environment minister of Freiburg and the mayor of Ungersheim Jean Claude Mensch. We are looking forward to the interesting discussion.
The screening will take place in Kommunales Kino on 9th of November at 19 Uhr with the cooperation of Fabrik e.V.and Fuss e.V. The event is a part of the “Climate Change here and now: Act – Klimawandel hier und jetzt: handeln” The whole program of the series can be downloaded here.
The film from Marie-Monique Robin “Qu’est-ce qu’on attend?” (“What are we waiting for?”) is a tribute to a village in transition and its chosen representatives who are leading the change with courage and awareness. As an initiative of the village council, a participatory democracy program has been started in 2009 in the village Ungersheim in Alsace under the name “21 Actions for the century”. The program covers all the aspects of daily life: nurture, energy, transportation, living space, money, work and school. “Autonomy” is the keyword of the program. With that, the program is aiming to shift the food production, reduce the dependency to oil, promoting energy efficiency and expansion of renewable energies and supporting the local economy with a complementary currency. The representatives of the program know how to mobilize the enthusiasm of the residents in the interest of common good.
The film will be shown in the original language (French) with German subtitles. We suggest booking a ticket to secure a spot through https://www.koki-freiburg.de/karten.php
