Two summer collaborations continue the momentum of One Earth Film Festival.
One Earth & DCASE
Screen 'WALL-E' at Millennium Park
In a distant, but not so unrealistic, future, mankind has abandoned the trash-covered earth, and WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot, has been left to clean up the mess.
One Earth Film Fest will screen the animated film “WALL-E” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 31, in the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. This collaboration with the Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events is part of the Millennium Park Summer Film Series.
“WALL-E” is a double feature with the film “Crash,” presented by the Peace on Earth Film Festival at 8:30 p.m. that same evening. Read more here.
One Earth & Go Green Wilmette
Screen 'Eating Animals'
Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, and directed by Christopher Quinn, "Eating Animals" is an urgent, eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming.
One Earth Film Festival collaborates with Go Green Wilmette to present screenings at the Wilmette Theatre between July 20 and 25. A special screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 25, will be followed by an optional post-film discussion. Tickets available here.
DePaul University Geography Professor Connie Johnston, Ph.D., will facilitate a discussion with Kay Stepkin, founder of the National Vegetarian Museum and pioneer of the vegetarian and natural food movements in Chicago and TJ Callahan, operating partner for Farmhouse Chicago, Farmhouse Evanston, and Farm Bar in Lakeview.
