We are presenting 17 virtual watch parties. Each watch party includes expert panel discussions that will equip you with ways to take action on the world’s most pressing environmental problems.
Tickets are free. We suggest an $8 donation to help us keep these events free to all.
CLIMATE CHANGE DOCUMENTARIES
"Life at 50 Degrees"
Sat, March 5, 2022 @ 1:00 PM – 3:15 PM PST
Namak Khoshnaw/2021/59 min/Climate Change, Environmental Advocacy, Environmental & Social Justice
FILM DESCRIPTION: With 2021 marked as the fifth hottest year on record, Life at 50 Degrees reveals how extreme temperatures around the world are wreaking havoc on nature, forcing climate migration, causing water shortages and triggering dangerous health conditions. By following people in seven countries, the film reveals the resourcefulness and resilience of many communities as they struggle to adapt and survive.
"Bring Your Own Brigade"
Sat, March 5, 2022 @ 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM PST
Lucy Walker/2021/127 min/Climate Change, Conservation, Sustainable Architecture
FILM DESCRIPTION: Raging, out-of-control wildfires have become part of the new normal around the globe, leaving heartbreaking devastation and death in their wake. In California, this harsh reality was underscored on Nov. 8, 2018, when several parts of the state were ablaze: the Camp Fire was ravaging most of the Northern California town of Paradise, and the Woolsey Fire was roaring through Malibu in the south. In the aftermath, residents face unthinkable loss. As they struggle to rebuild, they debate what could be done to prevent further tragedy.
