Screening of anti-sprawl film Radiant City

Radiant City 

 

 

 

Sprawl is eating the planet. Across the continent the landscape is being leveled – blasted clean of distinctive features and overlaid with a zombie-like monoculture. Gary Burns — master of dystopian comedy — hooks up with journalist Jim Brown to tell a startling family chronicle of the Late Suburban Age.

Welcome to Radiant City.

And you can go there in an advance, benefit screening of this eco-flick hosted by the sprawl-busters over at Environmental Defence on Monday, March 26 at 7 p.m. at the Varsity Cinema (Manulife Centre – 55 Bloor St. West).
