THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE
Climate Change, Capitalism & Community

Filmmaker John Ankele present
“A starkly prophetic film. It combines the direst of warnings with deep love of life. Better than any other film I know, it makes clear that our profit-oriented growth economy has caused the climate catastrophe and cannot itself rescue us from disaster. We need new thinking and a new way of life.” —Tom F. Driver, Paul Tillich Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, Union Theological Seminary
“Brilliant, achingly poignant. Please SEE THIS FILM—bring it to your community, talk about it, share it with others. It is one of the most artfully-rendered films on the planet’s crisis (and how we move through it) I have ever seen. Extraordinarily moving.” —Shyla Nelson, Founder, One Earth One Voice Campaign
In discussions with thought leaders and activists, The Wisdom to Survive explores how unlimited growth lies behind climate disruption, and is devastating our planet’s life support system, our social fabric, and the lives of billions of people. Featured: Bill McKibben (350.org), author Joanna Macy, whale scientist Roger Payne, Herschelle Milford (Surplus People Project), Quincy Saul (Ecosocialist Horizons), and more.
Judson Church is located at 55 Washington Square South, NYC, 10012.
Presented in partnership with 350 NYC.
