The next film in The Elements: An Annual Environmental Film Series will be Comfort Zone, about what climate change means locally, in our own backyards. The film will be shown on Monday, April 2, 2018, 7 pm at Chapman Hall on the campus of Middlesex Community College, 100 Training Hill Road in Middletown, CT (maps, directions and public transportation). All films are open to the public and free of charge.
"Is climate change a scientific problem? An engineering problem? A psychological problem? All that, and more?"As described on the film's website, Comfort Zone takes an in-depth look at global climate issues in our backyards. Though set in upstate New York, it illustrates the types of effects that can happen anywhere. The three residents and filmmakers each provide their own perspective. Kate worries about her children growing up in a different, more challenging world than the one she grew up in. For Dave, the climate problem is an internal crisis that each person must approach from the inside out. And Sean focuses on the science behind the greenhouse effect, and looks at possible solutions.
Please save the date and join us for this engaging, consciousness-changing, and often funny film that presents climate change from a personal perspective, and challenges us to confront our own connection to this global problem.
After the film, we welcome you to stay for an informal discussion.
We hope you can join us! Phone our office at 860-346-3282 for more information.
