Island Earth at Patagonia Santa Monica
Cyrus Sutton’s documentary-style film tells the tale of indigenous scientist Cliff Kapono and his struggle for truth between science and tradition as he enters an industry that many feel is threatening his homeland of Hawaii. This film captures our moment in time, where two separate paths are being forged at once: one that builds upon the past in the name of progress, and the other that rejects the past in the name of progress.
The film is appropriate for all ages and addresses the question: How are we going to feed the world without destroying the planet we live on? Screening is at 7 pm followed by a Q&A with Cyrus Sutton.
