Connect with other activists and folks passionate about the environment while watching three incredible documentaries. Proceeds will benefit local conservation projects!
On a remote atoll in the North Pacific Ocean, albatross chicks are dying, bodies filled with plastic. The film “Albatross” unflinchingly shows the horror and grief of this tragedy, but ultimately brings us to a deeply felt experience of beauty and love for life on Earth.
“The Reluctant Radical” follows activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change.
“SEED:: The Untold Story” tells how in the last century, 94 percent of seed varieties have disappeared. As bio-tech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food.
General admission $8; students and gallery members $6.
