Movie Night at Pop’s Art Theater

Join EarthFest for a sustainability/nature-themed film at Pop’s Art Theater! Regenerating Life takes an ecological approach to unraveling the climate crisis. It offers a deeper look at the underlying causes of global warming, going beyond carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels to humankind’s relentless destruction of nature in all corners of Earth. Because ultimately it is nature—the vast biodiversity that exists on our planet—that regulates and balances Earth’s climate.

John Feldman explores how life regulates the climate through photosynthesis and the carbon cycle; the water cycle; the dung cycle; and a vast interconnected soil network of fungi, microorganisms, and plant roots. He dives into the economic and political systems that have encouraged this destruction of Earth through the relentless quest for wealth and dominion.

We can reverse this destructive process by regenerating life across the planet. Feldman visits people who are working on solutions. By working with nature, they are restoring forests, fields, wetlands, and oceans. They are regenerating soils to grow healthy food and build healthy communities, pointing the way to long term solutions to the climate crisis.

REGENERATING LIFE is divided into 3 parts:
1. Water Cools the Planet
2. Life Sustains the Climate
3. Small Farms Feed the World

The film has a run time of 137 minutes.

The film is free but seats are limited so be sure to get your ticket here!
