Following the film there will by a discussion about the issues raised by the film led by Kiwi born author Tony Kearney who will also talk about his book:

 

Who Owns the Future? - Book

“A fascinating and epic appraisal of humanity, the Earth, the Universe, evolution and more, Who Owns The Future? merges themes of environmentalism, philosophy, science, psychology, language, sociology, metaphysics, religion, gender relationships, politics, poverty, and population in its search for ways to address the awesome challenges confronting us.”

 

If you are looking for a fresh, optimistic and quirky approach to the massive issues we face going forward into the future then this most definitely is the night for you!  Come and learn how to speak fluent Kiwi and help save the Planet at the same time!
