For one night only, Palace Electric Cinemas will be hosting a screening of the acclaimed feature film Unity.
"UNITY is a new documentary that explores humanity’s hopeful transformation from living by killing into living by loving. It is a unique film about compassion for all beings, or all expressions of life,” and going beyond all “separation based on form,” and beyond perceiving opposites.
Writer/Director Shaun Monson, collaborating with an astounding cast of 100 celebrity narrators (never before gathered in the history of film-making), presents a message of love, tragedy and hope, all set against the backdrop of some of the most compelling 20th and 21st Century footage imaginable.
With a cast of 100 voices, (including Jennifer Aniston, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Spacey, Helen Mirren, Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Levine, Dr. Dre and Tony Hawk) all speaking as once voice. UNITY is a genuine cinematic experience unlike any other."

Green Agenda @ Alliance Francaise Canberra
Borders work differently depending who or what you are - refugees, corporations, trade, security, pollution, information.... Who decides? Who benefits? Why are our borders playing such a pivotal role in today's politics? If you're in or around Canberra on Saturday 15 August join our next Green Agenda launch with Jasmina Brankovich (via internet from Perth), Kyla Tienhaara and Josh Wyndham-Kidd. Jasmina's Green Agenda essay on refugees and human rights will be published in the lead up to the discussion.
China and India are the world's two biggest importers of thermal coal and both are moving rapidly to transform their energy markets. The implications for Australia are huge. If coal is indeed in structural decline, stranded assets await - mines in the Galilee Basin, Whitehaven, Shenhua to name a few. Tim Buckley, Director of Energy Finance Studies, Australasia, for the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, draws on 25 years of financial market experience to survey the outlook for Australian coal.
