The Mercury will host the first public screening in Adelaide of this new feature documentary by Sam Collins which has largely been shot in and around the greater Adelaide.

It is a particularly important movie because it proposes solutions to many of the major challenges facing the world today - climate change, overpopulation, urban design, food security and the adoption of an ethical framework for decision-making.

It also gives perspectives from the upcoming generation that will have to manage the planet over the coming decades through the eyes of young South Australians, Tom and Nikki Brookman

Whilst it is a global film, Adelaide is clearly in the background as Graham Brookman demonstrates a model for the design of sustainable cities. Those developing Greater Adelaide are clearly getting some advice!

The DVD of the movie includes an extra 25 minute Virtual Tour of The Food Forest, and is on sale via The Food Forest (as well as signed copies at the premiere). Purchase the DVD here...
