Earth Day 2014

with Humanist Hall

screening the film:

 

 

A Fierce Green Fire:

The Battle for a Living Planet 

 

a film by

Mark Kitchell

 

 

This is the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement — grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change.  Directed and written by Mark Kitchell and narrated by five stars of our time — Robert Redford, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, Isabel Allende, and Meryl Streep — the film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2012 and has won acclaim at festivals around the world, and in 2013 begins theatrical release as well as educational distribution and use by environmental groups and grassroots activists.


The film unfolds in five acts, each with a central story and character:

 

* David Brower and the Sierra Club’s battle to halt dams in the

   Grand Canyon

* Lois Gibbs and Love Canal residents’ struggle against 20,000 tons of

   toxic chemicals

* Paul Watson and Greenpeace’s campaigns to save whales and

   baby harp seals

* Chico Mendes and Brazilian rubbertappers’ fight to save the

   Amazon rainforest

* Bill McKibben and the 25-year effort to address the impossible issue –

   climate change

 

 

$5 donations are requested
