From April 15th - the 22nd, watch this new documentary film, The Land of Azaba

Then on the 22nd at 7 pm  - Earth Day - join us for a zoom webinar with Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Greta Schiller, director of the soon to be released feature documentary, The Land of Azaba.

Addressing climate change is the existential question of our time, but climate change and bio-diversity loss are two sides to the same coin. The first feature documentary on the theme of ecological restoration, The Land of Azaba immerses the viewer in a magical world where humans and wildlife work together to restore the largest remaining tract of wild nature in western Europe. The survival of many rare and endangered species is at stake.

“A landscape of hope, truly moving, timely and important!” —Christof Mauch, Director, Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society.

Watch the film, and hear from veteran documentary filmmaker Greta Schiller (BeforeStonewall, Paris Was a Woman) as she joins in conversation with Stuart Z. Katz Professor of English Emily Raboteau (novelist/essayist) and Professor of Biology Ana Carnaval (biodiversity specialist) in a special Earth Day event moderated by writer Esther Tolkoff.

With your RSVP, you will receive a link to view The Land of Azaba from April 15th-22nd, ending with the panel at 7 PM on that Thursday, and a link to that Zoom webinar.
