Description

Matthew Testa/2018/76 min/Climate Change

CHICAGO-AREA PREMIERE. FILM DESCRIPTION: Renowned photographer James Balog (prominently featured in “Chasing Ice”) uses his camera to reveal how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans. Following the four classical elements—air, earth, fire and water—to frame his journey, Balog explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal mining, and the changes in the air we breathe. He takes it further by examining the effects of the fifth element—the human element—to tell an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature.

After the film, participate in audience dialogue. Then, engage with and learn about concrete action opportunities from: St Clement Justice Ministry, Trees That Feed Foundation, Archdiocese of Chicago Creation Care Team, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, and Catholic Theological Union. Facilitator, Rebekah Hamilton, St. Clements Catholic Church Justice Ministry.

Doors open 30 minutes before start time. Arrive early to avoid lines and get best seats. Teens and young adults encouraged to attend. "PG-13" May contain heavy themes, graphic images or language.
