Invisible Hand: Rights of Nature documentary screening and Q and A

June 15, 2021 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

June 14–15, we invite you to watch a free screening of the award-winning Rights of Nature documentary, Invisible Hand. It follows several communities as they fight back against big industry’s quest to offload toxic waste, build more pipelines, and develop the land at any cost—even if it means contaminating rivers and destroying ecosystems. The title, Invisible Hand, refers to the invisible hand of capitalism. 

Executive producer Mark Ruffalo explains, “This [Rights of Nature] movement changes everything. It honors Indigenous wisdom and shifts our priorities. It restores balance by placing nature at the center of our decision-making processes and gives the power that corporations stole back to our communities.”

The free screening is available for 24 hours, beginning Monday, June 14 at 7:30pm AT. On Tuesday, June 15 at 7:30pm AT there will be a virtual Q&A with community organizers from the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), featured in the documentary. 

This screening is co-hosted by the Sierra Club Atlantic Canada Chapter and the newly formed Rights of Nature Network – Atlantic Canada. Register for the Zoom link, updates and the password to watch the film here.
