There will be a screening of a French (English subtitles) sci-fi comedy film “The Green Beautiful” – La Belle Verte (1996) hosted by Transition Galway starting at 8:15pm Wednesday 21st Nov at the new 091 Labs on Flood Street. Entry is by donation. All are welcome!
As part of an intergalactic coalition, a well-meaning space alien volunteers to bring a message of self-actualization and harmony with nature to the one planet rejected by all her peers as incorrigible–Earth. This family-oriented French sci-fi comedy chronicles her adventures on the chaotic planet. Mila is 150 years old and has five children; encoded in her brain are two telepathic programs designed to restructure the thinking of destructive humans.
PG, 1 hr. 35 min.
Art House & International, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Comedy
There will be a screening of documentary film Koyaanisqatsi – Life Out of Balance (1982) hosted by Transition Galway starting at 7pm this Friday, 26th October. Entry is by donation, and will go towards the redesign of our new space. All are welcome!
An art-house circuit sensation, this feature-length documentary is visually arresting and possesses a clear, pro-environmental political agenda. Without a story, dialogue, or characters, Koyaanisqatsi (1983) (the film’s title is a Hopi word roughly translated into English as “life out of balance”) is composed of nature imagery, manipulated in slow motion, double exposure or time lapse, juxtaposed with footage of humans’ devastating environmental impact on the planet.
Time: 1 hr. 27 min.
Directed By: Godfrey Reggio
Written By: Michael Hoenig, Ron Fricke

091 Labs will be running Ignite Galway for the first time this year on Thursday October 13th @ 9pm in Kelly’s Bar and we’re looking for speakers!
What is Ignite? According to their website, “It’s a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea”.
Each speaker is given 5 minutes and 20 powerpoint slides to talk on a subject they are passionate about. All talks get recorded and put up online later for the rest of the world to watch.
A speaker can be anyone who has a good story to tell, be they artists, chefs, coders, comedians, designers, educators, entrepreneurs, musicians, photographers, students, technologists, thinkers and everything else!
If you (or someone you know) would be interested in giving a talk and spreading an idea or volunteering or sponsoring the event, please email email@example.com =)
091Labs are thrilled to announce their very own Ignite Galway, happening as a fundraiser for our much loved hackerspace on Friday, the 10th December, at 7pm. Like last time. there will be 13 inventive, courageous speakers, who have generously volunteered to take to the stage to give the audience a 5 minute insight into their wacky and wonderful ideas.
There will be lots of surprises throughout the night as we are determined to entertain, educate, enlighten and inspire you (and we’ll be sure to delight you while we’re at it).
Here are some of last Septembers talks as a reminder of the diversity and quality of the talks on the night.
