A new initiative by Byron Youth Service (BYS) has launched, which aims to educate and bring together a community of passionate people of all ages.
Called the Conscious Movie Club, the monthly outdoor movie event is also a fundraiser for social and environmental organisations.
Co-organiser Lealah Shostak says, ‘Our first open-air movie night will feature a Sea Shepherd film, Sea Of Shadows, a documentary that tells the tale of the world’s most endangered marine mammal, the Vaquita. The Vaquita is also the world’s smallest dolphin!’
‘Sea Of Shadows takes us on the journey through what it means to save this beautiful creature. We watch as Mexican drug cartels, Chinese traffickers, dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationist and courageous undercover agents clash in the Sea of Cortez which is the home to the Vaquita.
‘Join us for this engaging movie followed by a Q&A with volunteers who were in the treacherous field risking their lives for the Vaquita.
‘It’s a PG-13+ film, so bring the family down to the YAC. Tickets are $15 and $10 for under 18s.
‘Bring a picnic mat and a cushion. Get tickets at www.bys.org.au/movieclub’.
Sea Of Shadows will screen on January 15 from 7pm at the Youth Activities Centre (YAC), located at 1 Gilmore Cres, Byron Bay.
