From the director, Raul Alvarez:
“I am very happy to share some news about my film “Land Awakening” going for another two screenings;
This coming June 11 the film’s premiere in Western Canada at the Okanagan College in Penticton, B.C. in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, kindly sponsored by Nikos Theodosakis’ restaurant “THEOS” and by CURB, The Centre for Urban Agriculture.
I am thrilled to return with “Land Awakening” to Penticton, such a warm and friendly community, very much engaged into healthy and locally grown food production and consumption. Thank you all for your support.
The film has also been invited to and will have its European Premiere at the amazing FINDHORN FOUNDATION in Scotland this coming June 16.
The Findhorn Foundation is one of the most relevant and successful sustainable eco-villages in the world. It is a great honor to screen the film in such an exceptional place as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations, during this special time, the 2012 summer solstice week. Making the occasion even more special is that my son Pablo, who at the very start was the inspiration to making this film, will join me for the screening in Scotland.
Having been invited to Findhorn became in much part a reality thanks to the gracious request of my dearest friend Michael Baker, who is one of the main characters in the film. Findhorn accepted the suggestion and included the film in their programming at their equally unique venue, the “Universal Hall”. Michael and I will hold a Q&A session after the presentation of the film. Michael is a Resource Person of the Findhorn Foundation, their representative in Malaga, Andalucia, Spain.
Screening “Land Awakening” at Findhorn for me represents a tremendous recognition to the film. I can’t fully express how happy I am for this. It is an amazing reward to all these three years plus of work dedicated to what it is now for me a fully life-changing experience: “Land Awakening”.”
