The Rescope Project presents The Transitions Film Festival which showcases groundbreaking documentaries about the social and technological innovations, revolutionary ideas and trailblazing change makers that are leading the way to a better world.
A Silent Transformation is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative model. The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective wellbeing in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion and cultural discrimination. As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever. However, over the years the co-op sector has become insular and poorly understood.
A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of diverse communities across the Province of Ontario, which by addressing their needs collectively are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation. In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity, and a new popular movement to transform society! Will it grow and flourish?
The film will be introduced by Eugenie Stockmann, the founder of Green Fabric, which emerged from her co-founding & directing of the award-winning collaborative housing initiative The Green Swing. And it will be followed by a panel discussion with special guests: Paul Flatau, Director of the Centre for Social Impact at UWA; Kerrie Nayler, from P&N Bank on behalf of the Business Council for Co-Operatives & Mutuals (BCCM); Andrea Biondo from Galactic Co-Operative. The evening is hosted by Tom Kooy
