Encompass New Opera Theater in association with The Environmental Education Fund presents Paradigm Shifts 2015, a Music and Film Festival. On Sunday, March 29 at 7:00 p.m., the festival concludes with a special music appearance by Brooklyn based traditional American Folk Music ensemble The Whiskey Spitters, which will be followed by a double feature.

The first screening will be Growing Cities, directed by Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette (97’). Searching for answers, the filmmakers take a road trip and meet men and women who are challenging the way America grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, one rooftop garden and one backyard chicken coop at a time. Along the way they discover that these urban visionaries are harvesting more than food; they’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.

The second screening will be Brooklyn Farmer by Michael Tyburski (27’). This is a portrait of urban agrarians who are committed to transforming the city’s relationship to fresh, healthy, locally-produced food, despite considerable challenges and setbacks. There will be a post-screening Q&A with the filmmakers.

Tickets for this event are $20 for adults, $15 for students and seniors. Tickets and information for the entire festival are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or (866) 811-4111, or online.

The seminar will be enlightening, provocative and most importantly insightful. You will learn that everyone faces problems and there are always ways to solve them.
