In Transition 1.0 - special offer

Transition Network 'In Transition 1.0' film special mailout

One off announcement January 2010

We're writing to you as someone who has bought Transition-related books or DVDs from TransitionCulture.org in the past. We thought you'd like to know about our new film 'In Transition 1.0' because we're excited about it and we think you’ll enjoy it too. We're excited because it is the first detailed film of the Transition movement, and it’s been filmed by those who know it best, those who are making it happen on the ground.

‘In Transition’ tells the story of the generation that looked peak oil and climate change square in the face, and responded with creativity, compassion and genius. It provides inspiration and motivation to join together and collectively meet the challenges of climate change and peak oil with renewal and hope instead of fear and apathy.

In the film you'll see stories of communities creating their own local currencies, setting up their own pubs, planting trees, growing food together, celebrating localness. You’ll see neighbours sharing their land with neighbours that have none, local authorities getting behind their local Transition initiatives, schoolchildren making news in 2030, and you'll get a sense of the scale of this emerging movement. It is a story of hope, and it is a call to action, and we think you will like it very much. It is also rather funny in places. We've put the whole movie on the internet for you to watch here and there's more information about it here.

'In Transition' has been shown in communities around the world to enthusiastic audiences, and it is now available as a special edition 2 disc DVD set, beautifully packaged in entirely compostable packaging, featuring the film itself (with subtitles in Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano,and Nederlands) and an embarrassment of outtakes and extras, with interviews, films about Transition you’ve been searching high and low for quality copies of, and other gems. It is a must-have for anyone with an interest in this new take on responding to the challenges of the 21st century.

Transition groups can buy bulk copies of the DVD at very good discounts. Being able to make ‘In Transition 2.0' will depend, in part, on our being able to recoup the expenses of the first one, so do buy copies and tell people about the film! The license for the movie allows you to use it for public screenings wherever you like and as often as you like. So do let us know how you found the DVD and the extras, and tell us your stories about any screenings you hold. You can see the film here on Vimeo in its entirety here: http://www.vimeo.com/8029815, you can read a review of the film here: http://transitionculture.org/2010/01/19/a-review-of-in-transition-1-0/, and you can order copies of it here: http://transitionculture.org/in-transition/.

Thank you!

Suggestions for Group screenings

Here are some suggestions from the Transition Initiative Primer:

Introduce the film personally by putting it into the context of your overall hopes for your community

Have everyone turn to someone they don’t know and, in turns, introduce themselves and explain what brought them to the event that night

Show the movie

Have everyone pair up (preferably with someone they don’t know) and do an active talking/listening exercise about their impressions of the movie (ie one talks for 3 minutes while the other listens, then they switch over). You can give direction with something like “Say what gives you cause for concern and then what gives you cause for hope about the movie”

Run a Q&A on Peak Oil and/or Climate Change. Make sure you have someone there who knows what he/she is talking about – though it’s no shame to say “I don’t know, but I can find out and get back to you”.

Watch out for the “I’m alone in the depths of my fear” type questions – they’re typically a cry out for counselling or connection and can paralyse a room. What can work in that situation is to acknowledge the person’s fear and then to ask in the room “if there’s anyone here who has a part of themselves that is full of fear around this, please put up your hand”. Put yours up first… and hope! Unless you’re sitting in a room full of denial, you’ll see a lot of hands shoot up. You can then explain that the Transition model has a place where people can move through their fears and into a place of action (usually handled by the “Heart and Soul” group, once it’s formed).
