Climate Justice Movie Night

Friday, February 9th at 6PM

The Climate Justice Group is inviting you to a movie night in Freeman Hall on Friday, 02/09 at 6:00pm. There will be kid-friendly food (pizza), appetizers, desserts, two movies for the kids to choose from, and an opportunity for adults to socialize informally in the Parlor. The Lorax will be the feature film for younger kids, and The Serengeti Rules will be shown in the Chapel.The Climate Justice Group hosts these potlucks to highlight the outsized impact the meat industry has on greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity, and human health.

The Lorax: Twelve-year-old Ted lives in a place virtually devoid of nature; no flowers or trees grow in the town of Thneedville. Ted would very much like to win the heart of Audrey, the girl of his dreams, but to do this, he must find that which she most desires: a Truffula tree. (The Swifties amongst you will know that Audrey is voiced by TayTay ). To get the tree, Ted delves into the story of the Lorax, once the gruff guardian of the forest, and the Once-ler, who let greed overtake his respect for nature.

The Serengeti Rules: This Oscar-winning film chronicles the adventures of a group of young scientists headed out into the wilderness beginning in the 1960s, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works. Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth—from the majestic Serengeti to the Amazon jungle; from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools—they discover a set of rules that govern life on Earth.
