The second screening, brought to you by the Film Club @ Barefoot – the last Tuesday of every month …
If you love your planet
If you love your children
You have to see this film
Humanity is sitting on a ticking time bomb. If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced…
An Inconvenient Truth offers a passionate and inspirational look at one man’s fervent crusade to halt global warming’s deadly progress in its tracks by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. That man is former Vice President Al Gore, who, in the wake of defeat in the 2000 election, re-set the course of his life to focus on a last-ditch, all-out effort to help save the planet from irrevocable change.
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his NOT understanding it”

Dusk descends as we cross the bridge at Udawalawe making our way on to the Selakatragama road. We both remark that it is, in our recent memory, the most beautiful day we have seen.
One then wonders why we as a nation cannot get together and object to the governments policies, or to what the so called terrorists are up to in all their atrocity. We can’t get together because, as narhop says “the country is so damn beautiful”. One reads the paper in the morning and the resultant feeling of helplessness decreases as the mind is distracted by how stunning the view is. Whether it is from a car window driving through the interior of the island, or a glance from a bedroom window in Colombo, one is grateful at how lucky one is; to live amongst such beauty. The greenery is abundant showing a mix of wet and dry zone plants. Khombha trees, stately tall trees that boarder the menik ganga, which remind me of oak, a paddy field and a monk walking across-the classic combination of orange robe and black umbrella to further beautify the spirit. The tanks filled to the brim with clean clear water, its that magical time of the year. Another paradox in this island of ours-when we are at our political worst, the country looks its magnificent best.
Just to say that the gallery is undergoing a renovation, specifically to it’s floor. By the end of July there should be brand new cement floor, all shiny and new for us to walk barefoot ceaselessly, look at pictures, move furniture and god willing, not drop a piano on.
So if you come into the cafe for a bite to eat and wonder what’s happening behind the white screen , now you know. Can be a bit noisy at times, do please bear with us.
It should be good once it’s over, and we will kick off the new floor with an exhibition by Phoenix O & M.
