It’s just past 11 o’clock in the morning and I’ve made my way to Cafe Diplomatico or “The Dip” we’ve often referred to. It’s a main-stay along College Street where everyone from suits to moms with strollers and old timers like to hang out. It’s one of those joints where you can just be yourself. Just chill.
Playing now in theatres across the country, REVOLUTION has grossed just over $130K in the first three days. With impressive pre-release group sales, the film continues to attract large numbers of students and educators in the week leading up to Earth Day. “The reaction to the film by youth has been amazing,” said Jim Sherry, President and Founder of D Films. “Their enthusiasm and love for the planet is inspiring and we hope that they continue to be ambassadors for the film and its message.”
In order to reflect the filmmakers’ push towards environmental education, $25,000; ten scholarships for $2,500 each will be awarded to Canadian students who are committed to creating a sustainable society for future generations–courtesy of D Films, NBC Universal and Metro, in a joint effort.
The award winning film REVOLUTION takes you on an epic adventure with filmmaker and activist Rob Stewart, Director of the groundbreaking documentary SHARKWATER. Join Rob as he embarks on a 4-year journey through 15 countries to find the key to empowering a sweeping conservation movement across Canada and the world. After travelling to some of Earth’s most beautiful and fragile ecosystems, learning from the top environmental scientists and participating in major protests and rallies across the globe, Rob leads us to the ultimate understanding – that the younger generation is our future, and hold the key to saving our species.
Looks amazing! Sharkwater was chilling, and this looks equally as compelling. Bravo to Rob Stewart for shining a spotlight on such issues!! (And a good Toronto boy, at that. YAY!)
Sounds like it’s a great movie and a worthy follow-up to Sharkwater. Can’t wait to see it!
