Tuesday through Thursday April 7, 8, 9 – 2020 Eco Film Series- CANCELED

The Gregg Museum’s 2020 Earth Month Eco-Film Series features three riveting documentaries linked by the theme of water:

_____

Chasing Coral  Tuesday, April 7 6:00pm

Teeming beauty is only a degree or two from stark tragedy in a stunning quest in which divers, photographers, and scientists set out to unravel the mystery of why the world’s coral reefs are disappearing so quickly. Using footage from thirty countries, director Jeff Orlowski spent three years creating a film that seeks to raise awareness of a global climate catastrophe already well underway.

Darwin’s Nightmare  Wednesday, April 8 6:00pm

Once you’ve seen Hubert Sauper’s Academy Award-nominated Darwin’s Nightmare, you may never eat store-bought fish again. After predatory Nile Perch were introduced to Africa’s immense Lake Victoria, they began consuming all the native fish and multiplying so fast that the only way to salvage the disaster was to begin eating them in turn. Now Russian cargo planes haul each day’s catch to the world’s grocery chains in exchange for weapons and ammunition for the uncounted wars in the heart of the continent.

Watermark  Thursday, April 9 6:00pm

Water is a magnificent force of nature that we too often take for granted—until it’s gone. From renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky and award-winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier, Watermark offers breathtaking images and gorgeous cinematography to probe humankind’s complex relationship to what covers nearly three fourths of the earth’s surface and remains life’s most essential element.

All screenings are held at the Gregg Museum, 1903 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh (just across Pullen Road from the Memorial Belltower), and are free of charge. Seating may be limited, so arrive early!
