FILMS: In Transition by Emma Goude (UK 2009) - Sunday 22 November

This month the Comms group is preparing a programme of events for the winter and would like your views. Please go to http://www.doodle.com/zazzr95xyrbpwxvh to select any films you would like to see and add other events that you would like in the comments below the doodle. Those who enjoyed moving across the dance floor at the Transition-supported ceilidh at The Keir Hardie Hall in September might like to step out to the low carbon acoustic band, Shufflewing, on 18 November http://www.reeldance.org.uk.
At the heart of learning how to transition to a world beyond oil is building community. In Transition successfully portrays the real 'getting your hands dirty' approach that is the hallmark of transition work, and shows it active in groups across the whole of the U.K. and the world. Also clear is how far transition work has progressed in a year. Not just in terms of numbers of groups across the country - they have proliferated !- but through the seriousness with which we are now taken by local and national politicians, policy makers, and big media personalities. "Transition Towns has become mainstream", proclaims one person in the film - but not at the expense of its fundamental creativity, infectiousness, and grassroots soul. It's great to see Transition Norwich featured so prominently in the film too - watch it and be inspired! (Chris Hull/Core)
