October 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15
Pachamama Wholefoods + Kitchen is proud to present our second Movie Night! We will be screening the documentary 2040. This amazing solution-focussed film by That Sugar Film director Damon Gameau. This hybrid feature documentary looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW!
Also: ***Free organic vegan popcorn*** (if that doesn’t work we don’t know what will)
The film will be followed by a panel discussion focussing on three prominent areas of impact relevant to Melburnians who want to create change for our planet. Our panelists are: Tom Abbotsmith Youl – Regenerative farmer at Toms Paddock, Cr Mark Riley – Deputy Mayor, South Ward, Moreland City Council (Greens) and Sean Trewick – President of Circular Economy Victoria.
This is a charity event! All profits will go to Sisterworks – supporting women who are Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Migrants by selling their products to improve their living.

Motivated by concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon Gameau embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability. Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it. From marine permaculture to decentralised renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into their own hands.
This journey is the central premise for the documentary ‘2040’, a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’, instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented.
Details of the event:
Food: we will have a reduced café menu available from 6pm till 7pm. We will be serving free vegan buttered + salted popcorn all night. Please note we are a working cafe and grocery store and will be closing as normal at 7pm so please arrive early if you would like to eat.
