Helms Bakery Partners With VisionLA To Screen “Racing To Zero”
December 3, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Please join us on Thursday, December 3rd at 8:00pm for the screening of Racing To Zero. The film is a quick-moving, upbeat documentary presenting new solutions to the global problem of waste. By simply substituting the word RESOURCE for the word GARBAGE, a culture can be transformed, and a new wealth of industries can emerge.
Three years ago the mayor of San Francisco pledged to achieve zero waste by 2020. Racing to Zero tracks San Francisco’s waste stream diversion tactics and presents innovative new solutions to waste. This film documents a surprising, engaging and inspiring race to zero.
US 2014, 69 mins. Director Christopher Beaver
Special Guests Attending: Director Christopher Beaver and guests from SoCal350 Climate Action and L.A. green garbage movement.
Parking is located at the Free Valet in the lot on Helms Avenue and Venice Boulevard.

The VisionLA ’15 Climate Action Arts Festival is the first-ever multi-disciplinary arts festival throughout the greater Los Angeles area organized to give artists a voice in the increasingly urgent conversation around climate change, resource use and environmental social justice. The festival is an all-volunteer, grassroots effort organized by artists for artists, and for the Los Angeles community as a whole. This first year, the festival is timed to coincide with the UN’s COP21 Global Climate Conference in Paris, from November 30 through December 11, to raise awareness of this important milestone in the international call for strong carbon emissions standards.
