The Scotiabank Big Picture Program: Toxic Puzzle – IN PERSON
We are on the brink of an ecological catastrophe. Due to pollution, and with climate change compounding the situation, cyanobacteria are growing more than ever. Toxic blooms now occur in lakes, rivers, dams, and lagoons all over the world. Meanwhile, diseases like ALS, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s linked to this bacteria are on the increase in many countries.

About The Scotiabank Big Picture Program
Every year Devour! invites students from regional schools to come to Devour! to appreciate the cultural experience of attending a film festival while seeing important films related to health and community. This year will be a little different with COVID restrictions in place…we will be streaming to classrooms this time around with this year’s theme of CLIMATE CHANGE. How does climate change affect food and food production, our daily lives, our economies and more? These powerful documentaries will be screened in person with socially distanced, regulated seating at the Al Whittle theatre, but also available online for schools and teachers to access in class ($100 screening fee per class with accompanying learning modules developed by Nourish NS) or streamed for $10 for children learning at home.
Ticket Price: $10 in-theatre (limited capacity)
Teachers & Schools take note: Book your $100 Virtual Class Booking, includes curriculum guide and the ability to stream into your classroom or for at home support. Recommended Ages 14+. Purchase here.
