The film features a chorus of voices calling for systemic economic change, including Vandana Shiva, David Korten, Michael Shuman, Richard Heinberg, Rob Hopkins, Juliet Schor, Zac Goldsmith, Bill McKibben, and Samdhong Rinpoche, the Prime Minister of Tibet's government in exile to name only a few of the exciting voices from the film.

The film will be preceded by a reception and exhibit of artwork by Sheridan College students entitled “Animating Good Food Ideas”.
