Spotlight Films presents Revolution on Aug. 27 at GEM Theatre in Grand Forks

Revolutionary movie about change will be playing at the GEM.

Albert Einstein nailed it when he defined insanity as “… doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” On Tuesday, Aug. 27, Spotlight Films will be showing Revolution. This is a film about changing the world, going for it, taking a stand, and fighting for something. A true-life adventure following writer/director, Rob Stewart (the award-winning Sharkwater) over four years and about 20 countries discovered there is a lot more than sharks at risk of becoming extinct. The underlying theme of this intense well-filmed enviro flick is the sense of immediacy. The new horsemen of the Apocalypse are climate change environmental degradation, species loss, ocean acidification and exploitation, pollution and food/water scarcity. Are we the climax species? Fact is our cerebral cortices have endowed us with the ability to deal with the challenge … so what are we waiting for? … More films!? In an effort to uncover the truth and find the secret to saving the ecosystems, we depend on for survival, Stewart embarks on a life-threatening adventure. This inspiring call to action will be shown at the GEM Theatre in Grand Forks at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 27. Thanks to Maureen and Marius Paquet of the GEM Theatre, Internet Movie Database, Mark Leiren-Young of TheTyee.ca, and our sponsors and supporters.You can learn more about Stewart from his book Save The Humans.
