FILM DESCRIPTION: Girls for Future follows four girls from Senegal, Indonesia, Australia and India who fight for a better future. Between the ages of 11 and 14, they are all directly affected by the consequences of environmental destruction. In the film, we see the global water crisis as it is playing out in Senegal. A visit to the girl from Indonesia highlights plastic waste pollution. A segment on the girl from India reveals the effects of the agricultural crisis. Finally, the Australian girl reveals the fatal destruction found within oceans and on land due to climate change.

"The Campaign Against the Climate"

Sun, March 13, 2022 @ 1:00 PM – 3:15 PM PDT

RSVP double feature: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/campaign-against-the-climate-let-us-breathe-watch-party-tickets-255479996547

Mads Ellesøe/2020/58 min/Environmental Advocacy, Historical Perspectives, Energy

FILM DESCRIPTION: The planet's largest oil companies were among the first to detect global warming. Instead of taking action, they launched a campaign that has derailed the fight against climate change. A shocking investigation uncovers what these institutions have done to impede the battle against climate change. Companies fired scientists who spoke out, and public perception was purposely manipulated. As the scale and urgency of the climate crisis are becoming undeniably clear, the impact these actions may have had on the race to save the planet is more startling than ever.

Will screen with Let Us Breathe.


"Extinction: The Facts"

Sun, March 13, 2022 @ 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM PDT

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/extinction-the-facts-watch-party-tickets-255507749557

Serena Davies/2020/58 min/Wildlife, Climate Change, Health

FILM DESCRIPTION: English broadcaster and historian, Sir David Attenborough, has encountered some of the world's most extraordinary animals and plants. But many of these wonders may now be destined to disappear from our planet forever. With 1 million species at risk of extinction, the huge variety of life on earth, known as biodiversity, is being lost at a rate never seen before in human history. This is a crisis not just for the natural world but for every one of us. This mass extinction threatens our food and water security, undermines our ability to control our climate and even puts us at greater risk for more pandemics.
