April 5- Honeyland
This film has made it on to several best-films-of-the-year lists and was the most awarded film from the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. This film follows a woman in the mountains of Macedonia cultivating honey using sustainable ancient beekeeping traditions which shows the delicate balance between nature and humanity. Talk back hosted by ethnobotanist Moselle Singh.
April 26- Anthropocene
Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, argue that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. Talk back hosted by author Heather Lyn Mann.
May 17- Sustainable Nation
International award-winning film follows three innovators who are taking lessons learned from Israel’s water shortage to the rest of the world. The work of this visionary trio highlights the nexus between food, energy and water and underscores how solving these enormous challenges can help free women, and the world, from life-threatening poverty, illness and lack of opportunity.
After each film a talk back will be held to answers any questions you may have regarding the films. The talk backs will be hosted by an individual who has expertise on the topic of the film.
