A Provocumentary by Jon Marro

When a huge mysterious hole appears in the sky it completely disrupts life on Earth. Some see it as the end of times, some as a means of exploitation, but others recognize “The Opening” as a cosmic and communal invitation to remember what it means and how to be - human.

Please join our Climate Culture Club for a screening and discussion of "The Opening" with the filmmaker, Jon Marro. The film is about 26 minutes long and can be viewed ahead of time here. Our discussion with the filmmaker will begin promptly at 6:30 pm and will be recorded. If you have a question for Jon, please leave a comment on the event in Mighty Network and we will prioritize questions from our Climate Culture Club members!

This is a free event. If you're able, please consider supporting the filmmaker via Patreon. Support MiCAN's ability to have programming like this with a donation.
