Urban Roots, New Documentary by TreeMedia Group


The Bioneers Conference is a leading-edge forum presenting breakthrough solutions for people and planet in San Rafael, California, October 15-17. At this year’s conference, social and scientific innovators focus on solutions inspired by nature and human ingenuity. For the first time in 21 years, Bioneers is bringing a special series of pre-conference screenings of its Moving Image Festival to the Bay Area. The Moving Image Festival, a highlight of the conference each year, showcases world-class documentaries and short films on social and environmental issues impacting people and the planet. The pre-screenings will give Bay Area attendees a sneak-peak of the award-winning films showing at this year’s event that offer eye-opening glimpses of corporate corruption and devastating destruction while retaining a sense of hope for the future.

Films include An Ecology of the Mind, a story about Gregory Bateson, celebrated anthropologist, philosopher, and author, that explores the challenges between the human race and the natural world; a rare theatrical screening of FUTURESTATES, a series of 11 fictional mini-features exploring possible future scenarios through the lens of today’s global realities; a special screening of Urban Roots, from the producer of the Leonardo DiCaprio documentary The 11th Hour, about a group of dedicated Detroiters working to fulfill their vision for locally-grown, sustainably farmed food; the world premiere of Confessions of an Ecoterrorist, the story of Peter Jay Brown and his daring feats on the high seas to protect the ocean’s sea mammals; plus the first feature documentary about the civil rights activists the Freedom Riders.
