This summer, ArchiText and InterfaceFlor present Docs at Dusk, an outdoor film fest in Toronto focusing on sustainability and design. The lineup: The End of Suburbia, So Right So Smart and Blue Gold: World Water Wars.
In July, August and September, eco-conscious film buffs are invited to get comfortable on the rooftop of the London Tap House for what can only be classified as documentary heaven.
Penned by Toronto filmmaker Gregory Greene, this doc examines the sustainability of suburbia in the midst of a declining fossil fuel supply and world oil peak. Appearances are made by The Geography of Nowhere author James Howard Kunstler, and Matthew Simmons, CEO of giant investment bank Simmons & Co., whose clients include Haliburton.
August 24: So Right So Smart
This film highlights the successes of businesses that have begun to explore the connection between the economy and the environment. It boasts a star-studded cast that includes Interface’s Ray Anderson, Janine Benyus of the Biomimicry Institute, Herman Miller’s Paul Murray and USGBC’s president Rick Fedrizzi.
September 14: Blue Gold: World Water Wars
Looking at the politicization of the world’s dwindling water supply, this film follows water crusaders such as Blue Planet Project’s Maude Barlow, Polaris Institutes’s Tony Clarke (co-author of Blue Gold, the book) and Michal Kravcik of NGO People and Water.
A panel discussion will preceed the screenings, which start at 9 p.m. sharp. RSVP at architextinc.com.
London Tap House is located at 250 Adelaide St W
