Black Cat Cinema presents a double feature of the visionary words and thoughts of futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard: Humanity Ascending: Our Story and Visions of a New Humanity.

Our Story is a movie that spans the history of the evolutionary journey of our species from the big bang to current times, where we find ourselves precariously standing at the edge of conscious evolution or self-destruction. Visions of a New Humanity touches the transcendent yearnings of life itself within us.

The double feature event takes place on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at the Hall with doors opening at 7 p.m. Admission is $8. Call 604-886-2780 for more information or email blackcat@resist.ca.

Next Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 11 and 12 from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, check out the Global Ethnic Bazaar at the Hall. This event is for those who import from and support "undeveloped" countries, and also to help support the local importers who depend on vending. There will be music, food, henna tattoos, a face painter and a kid zone. For more information contact Lisa Jamieson at lislaj@hotmail.com.
