‘A Story of Transition in 10 Objects’ all gathered together in one place

‘A Story of Transition in 10 Objects’ all gathered together in one place

As part of the promotion of ‘The Transition Companion‘, Emilio Mula made these 10 short films of different stories from the book. The recent BBC series ‘A History of the World in 100 Objects’ beautifully told the story of the evolution of human history illustrated by 100 objects chosen from the British Museum’s collection. We used a similar approach to tell the story of the emerging and unfolding Transition movement, which in its short life has spread to 35 countries around the world from its humble beginnings in Kinsale, Ireland. You can read more about these stories here, and here are the films…
