A Fierce Green Fire : The Battle for a Living Planet 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, Academy Award-nominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, and narrated by Robert Redford, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, Isabel Allende and Meryl Streep, the film premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2012, has won acclaim at festivals around the world.
A Fierce Green Fire chronicles the largest movement of the 20th century and one of the keys to the 21st. It brings together all the major parts of environmentalism. It focuses on activism, people fighting to save their homes, their lives, the future – and succeeding against all odds. The film ends with the movement to stop Climate Change.
Our special guest speaker is Kathy Dervin, Berkeley public health educator and environmental activist now working with 350 Bay Area. She will report back on the recent People's March for Climate Action in New York City and talk to us about ways to get involved with the work of 350.org. After the film. signups will be taken for a book group to read and discuss Naomi Klein's new book This Changes Everything.
Please join us for locally grown snacks at 6:30. The film will start promptly at 7:00.
