Film Festival: The New Environmentalists

Monday, October 10 @ 8:15 pm - 9:45 pm

| $10

Narrated by Sigourney Weaver, The New Environmentalists — from Malawi to Peru (US 2022, 30 min) is the latest in the Mill Valley Film Group’s Emmy Award-winning series about the dedicated recipients of the Goldman Environmental Prize who all have a common goal: Safeguarding Earth’s natural resources while fighting for justice in their communities. Evan-Marie Petit’s POMO LAND BACK: A Prayer from the Forest (US 2022, 7 min), created in collaboration with the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians, aims to honor the vital movement towards indigenous-led stewardship and rematriation of California forests. In Ben Derico’s Hasta la Última Gota (Until the Last Drop) (US 2022, 17 min), the citizens of Chile’s drought-afflicted Petorca Province fight to legislate water as a human right while enormous agribusinesses leech the vital resource from their community for profit. Nancy Kelly’s I’m a Burner (US 2022, 3 min) looks at how the Mountain Maidu tribe has managed forest fires for generations by thinning excess fuel build-up with prescribed burns. In Josh Izenberg and Brett Marty’s Eco-Hack! (US 2021, 17 min), biologist Tim Shields quits traditional observational biology, instead adopting direct intervention methods to prove that innovation, technology, and imagination may be the last hope for saving the planet.

Total program: 74 minutes.

Please note: This screening is at a rush. That doesn’t mean it is sold out but it does mean the festival isn’t selling any more advance tickets. If you want to see it that evening, arrive early (a bit more than an hour before it starts) and stand in the Rush ticket line.
