‘A place so lovely that it seems,
Neither from waking life nor dreams.
A mystery from those mysteries,
That startle shut and waking eyes.’
W.B. Yeats – Muckross – September 1st, 1926
We Regret That Due To Technical Problems The Showing Has Had To Be Re-schedulled For a Later Date.
Date will be announced in Local Press.
Conservation International is delighted to cooperate with Just Forests for the Irish Cinema Premiere in CinemaKILLARNEY of our award-winning short film series “Nature is Speaking” during the Killarney Celebration of Trees weekend. The “Nature Is Speaking” films are CI’s invitation to the human race to listen to nature. Nature’s message to humanity is simple: Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature. CI’s goal is that these films will help spark an international conversation. The best way to start a conversation is with a provocative statement. We want the “Nature Is Speaking” films to serve as a wake-up call — nature’s message must be heard now.
Thursday 19th May
Films will take approximately 60 minutes to show
Friday 20th May
“When I was a kid, bulldozers smashing through forests were a symbol of progress. For me, development is more about growing trees.” Antonio Brack, Peru’s former Minister of the Environment, describes three CI projects that prove that green growth is a viable economic strategy.
Along with the short films listed above, CinemaKILLARNEY will screen ‘Peruvian AMAZON’, one in a series of in depth stories of success.
THESE ARE IN DEPTH STORIES OF CI FIELD SUCCESSES, EACH AN EXAMPLE OF A WAY FORWARD TO TACKLING THE WORLD’S DIFFICULT ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES. THESE 8 TO 20 MINUTE FILMS, WERE PRODUCED THROUGH THE SONY & CI VISUAL STORYTELLING ALLIANCE.
