The Green Living Series is a monthly film screening organized by Green Concord and in collaboration with Red River Theatres.
The screenings are typically presented the second weekend of each month, Friday through Thursday, including one night offering a post-film discussion with a panel.
Having a room filled with passionate individuals engaging in constructive dialogue is why Green Concord originated the film series. We intend to continue educating and organizing the community on these important issues through a variety of events, the film series being one of those means.
Green Concord is a volunteer-based organization; any additional support we can rally from the community helps reinforce our efforts to improve overall awareness and understanding.

Upcoming Green Living Film Series

SAMSARA is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.
Celebrate Earth Day with a film depicting the beauty of our planet! Red River Theatres on April 22, 2013 at 7:00PM.
March 8 through 10 - Carbon Nation is a 2010 documentary film by Peter Byck about technological- and community-based energy solutions to the growing worldwide carbon footprint. The film is narrated by Bill Kurtis. Rather than highlighting the problems with use of fossil fuels, Carbon Nation presents a series of ways in which the 16 terawatts of energy the world consumes can be met while reducing or eliminating carbon-based sources. It contains optimistic interviews with experts in various fields, business CEOs, and sustainable energy supporters to present a compelling case for change while having a neutral, matter-of-fact explanation.

January 11 through 14 - American Meat is a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America. Beginning with a history of our current industrial system, the feedlots and confinement operations are unveiled, not through hidden cameras, but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, the story shifts to Polyface Farms, where the Salatin family has developed an alternative agricultural model based on rotational grazing and local distribution. Nationwide, a local-food movement of farmers, chefs, and everyday people has taken root... But could it ever feed us all?
