Though not technically a natural “ecosystem” – our food system deserves special consideration in the context of climate change. The way we gather, produce, and consume our food has profound environmental implications. And conversely, what's happening in the environment profoundly effects our food. We'll explore these themes as we screen the upcoming PBS documentary "Nourish" - narrated by Cameron Diaz - followed by a collection of animated shorts from Free Range Studios - including "Store Wars" and the full "Meatrix" trilogy. The producers of each will be on hand for discussions following the screenings.

6pm - 7pm: Nourish and discussion with Dr. Kirk Bergstrom
7pm - 8pm: Store Wars, the Meatrix and discussion with Erica Priggen
Dr. Kirk Bergstrom is founder and President of WorldLink Foundation. In this capacity, he has directed special projects for such clients as the United Nations, State of the World Forum, PBS, Walt Disney Imagineering, and Tech Museum of Innovation. A filmmaker and social entrepreneur, Kirk has developed and produced award-winning television, interactive multimedia, websites, museum exhibits, and educational curricula. He recently wrote and directed the PBS special Power Shift, a half-hour program on energy and sustainability. He also directed and produced Spaceship Earth: Our Global Environment, winner of two national Emmy Awards. In 1995, Kirk produced A Place to Stand, the official global television program for the UN’s 50th Anniversary.

Erica Priggen is an Executive Producer at Free Range Studios, where she heads the video and entertainment department, overseeing the creative and strategic development of all of the company's video campaigns.
