17 Nov Earth Days
Tuesday, November 17, 2009 / 7:30 PM
$6 general / $5 students
Visually stunning and vastly entertaining, Earth Days looks back to the dawn of the modern environmental movement – from its post-war rustlings in the 1950s to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration and the subsequent firestorm of political action. Personal testimony from the era’s pioneers, like former Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall, and rare archival media create a poetic meditation on humanity’s complex relationship with nature and an engaging history of the revolutionary achievements – and missed opportunities – of groundbreaking eco-activism.
