"Go Further", the new film by award-winning documentary filmmaker Ron Mann, explores the idea that the single individual is the key to large-scale transformational change. The film follows actor Woody Harrelson as he takes a small group of friends on a bio-fuelled bus-ride down the Pacific Coast Highway. Their goal? To show the people they encounter that there are viable alternatives to our habitual, environmentally-destructive behaviors. The travellers include a yoga-teacher, a raw food chef, a hemp-activist, a junk-food addict, and a college student who suspends her life to impulsively hop aboard.

This movie is a breath of fresh air. It is intelligent and through-provoking as well as fun to watch with several humorous scenes and remarks.

It's inspiring. It needs to be seen and shared with everyone... family and friends. Don't miss out on this one. Take a chance on a new compassionate perspective for our future. You'll be glad you saw it.
