Attention Rochesterians: this one is especially for you! Greentopia FILM proudly presents its first Community Supported Film (CSF), COMFORT ZONE, by Kate Kressman-Kehoe, Sean Donnelly, and Dave Danesh. The film premieres at The Little Theatre, on Wednesday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m.
COMFORT ZONE examines the impact of climate change right here in Rochester. Tucked away in Upstate New York, where rising sea levels or the threat of drought don’t seem to be pressing facors, we are in a sort of “comfort zone”. I’ve often heard my neighbors joke that the planet being a little bit warmer would even be a good thing for us! Learn more about climate change activism on a very local level. The film features some familiar faces, like Dr. Katrina Korfmacher with the University of Rochester Department of Environmental Medicine.
Come early to enjoy pre-screening entertainment, and then stick around afterwards for discussion with the directors.
. . . And speaking of movie screenings we are having three here in promotion of RecycleMania on campus. Last night Dirt! was featured. Now, this week with the theme being “Water Conservation”, you can come see the screening of Flow on Thursday, February at 8:00 p.m. in Dewey 1-101. Then on February 21st, you can see Food, Inc. All three of these films shed light on various topics within sustainability that just so happen to correspond with our message themes. RecycleMania is going way beyond recycling this year for us.
