Event:
A documentary film about the plight of WA's forests

City of Swan invites you to a special screening of Cry of the Forests, an award-winning film exploring the plight of WA's unique forests and their value in mitigating climate change.

The screening will be held on Tuesday 23rd February, 10am to 12pm at Swan Active Beechboro.

Tickets are now on sale; secure your booking today for $10 pp or by donation by calling 9207 8555. Morning tea is included.

Directed by Jane Hammond, the eye-opening Cry of the Forests seeks to change perceptions about native forests and their true value.

Synopsis:

WA's south-west forests are part of one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet and are recognised for their ability to capture and store carbon. They are vital to slowing run-away climate change yet instead of preserving them we are cutting them down at an alarming rate for charcoal, firewood and woodchips. Forests play a crucial role in the water cycle but the streams that once bubbled through these ecological communities are drying up and the critical habitat they provide for endangered species is shrinking.

Cry of the Forests takes viewers to the heart of the forests to see first-hand the beauty of these towering ecosystems and the life they support. Meet the activists armed with go-pros and dressed in camouflage gear risking their lives to bear witness to the logging and meet traditional custodians, tourist operators & farmers on the frontline of the battle to protect our forests.

Don't miss this special daytime screening of Cry of the Forests. Bookings are essential! For more information, please contact 9207 8555.

Would someone be kind enough to please let me know where I could see this movie cry of the forest another time (evenings for example) near Fremantle? I’m working when the Beechboro screening is on. Thanks, Jen
