“Can looking at evolution help us predict the future of humanity?” Community screenings of the documentary Living in the Future’s Past narrated by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges will take place at 7 p.m. May 3 at Brickworks in Friday Harbor, at 7 p.m. May 4 at Lopez Center and at 2 p.m. May 5 at the Sea View Theatre, Orcas Island.
Friday Harbor Film Festival invites everyone to a free screening of the award-winning documentary, Living in the Future’s Past Friday, May 3 at 7:00 pm at Brickworks. In this beautifully photographed tour de force of original thinking, Academy Award winner, Jeff Bridges shares the screen with scientists, profound thinkers and a dazzling array of Earth’s living creatures to revel eye-opening concepts about ourselves and our past, providing fresh insights into our subconscious motivations and their unintended consequences. Living in the Future’s Past shows how no one can predict how major changes emerge from the spontaneous actions of the many. How energy takes many forms as it moves through and animates everything. How, as we come to understand our true connection to all there is, we will need to redefine our expectations, not as what we will lose, but what we might gain by preparing for something different “What kind of future would you like to see?”
Q&A discussion with Director Susan Kucera via Skype to follow screening.
Preceding the film, representatives of the Center for Whale Research will present a trailer for their new film, Dammed to Extinction, about the four dams the CWR says are obsolete. They say the dams choke off thousands of miles of rivers in Washington state. Removing them would save money, salmon and killer whales, according to CWR.
