Local Film Screening in Thetford Center: April 22 at 7 p.m.

Come see this hope-filled documentary film, filled with the wisdom of people, mostly younger,
who see the wounds being revealed all around the world and are actively engaged in healing the
planet in their own inspired way.
Dancing with the Cannibal Giant is a 45-minute film that captures five remarkable stories of
people and places that are transforming the world. It follows the work and inspiration of people
like Leah Penniman of Soul Fire Farm, Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman of Climbing Poetree ,
and Gillian Kapteyn and Russell Comstock of Metta Earth Institute. It is a regional film (the
Upper Valley, Maine and upstate New York) as the filmmakers believe in the power of place and
the distinct nature of place to evoke stories unique to that location… and meaningful to the
people who are grounded in place and community.
The film screening will be followed by a discussion designed to move us beyond
disempowerment and despair, into spaces of action and hope. Light desserts will be provided.
