Description

Australian Preview Screening of John Feldman’s feature-length documentary, “Symbiotic Earth: How Lynn Margulis Rocked the Boat and Started a Scientific Revolution.” An engaging panel discussion will follow the screening. Symbiotic Earth explores the life and ideas of the extraordinary Lynn Margulis, a brilliant and radical scientist, whose unconventional theories challenged the male-­dominated scientific community and are today fundamentally changing how we look at our selves, evolution, the environment and our earth. As a young scientist in the 1960’s, Margulis was ridiculed when she first proposed that symbiosis was a key driver of evolution, but she persisted. Instead of the mechanistic view that life evolved through random genetic mutations and brutal competition, she presented a symbiotic narrative in which bacteria joined with one another to create animals, plants and all other organisms which together form a single multi-­dimensional living entity that covers the Earth. Humans are not the pinnacle of life with the right to exploit nature, but part of this complex cognitive system in which each of our actions has repercussions. Filmmaker John Feldman traveled globally to meet Margulis’ cutting-­edge colleagues and continually asked: What happens when the truth changes? Symbiotic Earth examines the worldview that has led us to climate change and extreme capitalism and offers a new worldview that encourages a sustainable and symbiotic lifestyle.
