CultureShift Book Club: My Octopus Teacher
Please RSVP by registering here: bit.ly/ffacshift3
Join FFAC’s new CultureShift Book Club! Meetings will take place on the first Tuesday of each month, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. PT. We’ll be discussing a variety of books and long-form articles that explore speciesism, racism, sexism, materialism, and their interconnections. Everyone is welcome!
This month we are watching the new documentary film "My Octopus Teacher", available on Netflix.
“Every day for a year, Foster [a South African filmmaker] went free diving without a wetsuit or scuba gear in the frigid ocean near Cape Town, with water temperatures as cold as 46 degrees Fahrenheit, to visit an octopus. He wanted to be “more like an amphibious animal” without barriers between himself and the marine environment.”
