DOCUMENTARIES


"The Pollinators"

Sun, March 6, 2022 @ 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM PST

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-pollinators-watch-party-tickets-254612231037

Peter Nelson/2019/92 min/Sustainable Food-Agriculture, Conservation, Wildlife

FILM DESCRIPTION: Honey bee colonies are dying at extraordinary rates. Close to half of the bee colonies in the United States are collapsing every year. The Pollinators takes us on a cinematic journey across the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we eat. Hear farmers, scientists, chefs, economists and academics explain the threats to honey bees and what it means to our food security.


"My Octopus Teacher"

Sun, March 6, 2022 @ 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM PST

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/my-octopus-teacher-watch-party-tickets-254761357077

Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed/2020/85 min/Wildlife, Conservation, Water

FILM DESCRIPTION: This Oscar-winning film follows Craig Foster as he begins a daily diving regimen in the freezing kelp forests of South Africa. What he discovers below the water’s surface is a totally alien motivation in the form of an unusually curious octopus. This beautiful record of an animal’s entire life was shot over a whole year and explores the habits and personality of a strange, undulating creature that most of us have only ever eaten. This film paints an immersive portrait of human-animal understanding, brimming with danger, drama, and devastating emotion.

Recommended for ages 8+ general audiences.
