FILM SCREENINGS ON DEMAND:

A Silent Transformation — Film viewing Oct. 5 to 12, webinar Oct. 12. The modern economy increasingly denies people basic amenities to give them a decent life. This documentary shows how the cooperative model is as critical as ever.

Children of the Vine — Film viewing Oct. 12 to 19, webinar Oct. 19. This film is an unsettling investigation into the controversial herbicide Roundup and how it harms public health.

We the Guinea Pigs — Film viewing Oct. 19 to 26, webinar Oct. 26. As plastic has become increasingly common throughout our lives, this film finds there’s also an inexplicable increase in the number of diseases and disorders in people, from breast cancer to low sperm quality.

Climate Baby Dilemma — Film viewing Oct. 26 to Nov. 2, webinar Nov. 2. This invite-only, preview screening of The Climate Baby Dilemma presented by the Center explores the growing number of Gen-Z and millennials who are refusing to bring a child into an increasingly unstable world due to climate change or struggling with the question of whether they should.

ABOUT: Center for Biological Diversity

https://www.biologicaldiversity.org/about/

At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants.

Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.
