Woodinville Meaningful Movies:
Coming Attractions

Join us on the second Friday of each month at 7:00 p.m. as Woodinville Meaningful Movies (WMM) presents a film of interest to everyone who wants to learn more about our world and make ours a more just and inclusive society.

Friday, February 12, 2016 - 7:00 pm - The Suffering Grasses

The Suffering Grasses captures the competing impulses among opponents of the Assad regime at the onset of the Syrian revolution. While conditions in the country are continually changing and evolving, the film serves as an early, intimate view of Syria’s refugee crisis, and it highlights important strategic debates that are still playing out among groups resisting the regime.

Against the backdrop of the Arab Spring and the complicated politics of the region, this film explores the Syrian conflict through the humanity of the civilians who have been killed, abused, and displaced. In all such conflicts, it is civilians, women and children, families and whole communities, who suffer at the leisure of those in power. When elephants go to war, it is the grass that suffers.

Update - 2/29/16:  The film portrays a time when the opposition was just beginning to form, and the Free Syrian Army was still an amorphous concept. The Syrian people hoped that the FSA would be there to defend civilians and not wage an all-out war against the government, using the same dirty tactics and human rights violations. The film portrays a time when there was still hope we could go back to the nonviolent revolution, but the armed revolution hijacked the genuine people's movement and foreign powers transformed Syrian people's legitimate demand of change into a total proxy war that keeps producing more death, devastation, refugees, and internally displaced people.

Friday, March 11, 2016 - 7:00 pm - Symphony of the Soil

Drawing from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, Symphony of the Soil is an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance soil. By understanding the elaborate relationships and mutuality between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource. The film also examines our human relationship with soil, the use and misuse of soil in agriculture, deforestation and development, and the latest scientific research on soil’s key role in ameliorating the most challenging environmental issues of our time. Filmed on four continents, featuring esteemed scientists and working farmers and ranchers, Symphony of the Soil is an intriguing presentation that highlights possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet.

INHABIT explores the many environmental and agricultural issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design process called ‘Permaculture’. Permaculture is a design lens that uses the principles found in ecosystems to help shift our impact from destructive to regenerative. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.
