Film Screening:
"Renewal: Stories from America's Religious-Environmental Movement"

Monday, September 26, 2011

220 McCardell Bicentennial Hall

7:00 p.m.

Producers Marty Ostrow and Terry Kay Rockefeller's documentary is inspired by the many Americans who are answering the spiritual call to confront the enormous challenges of environmental degradation. From within their Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim tradition, these men and women are finding ways to become caretakers of the earth. With great courage, they are re-examining what it means to be human and how we choose to live on this planet. The religious-environmental movement grows as people from diverse traditions work to build a sustainable future. "Renewal" is their story.

"The religious-environmental movement is potentially key to dealing with the greatest problem humans have ever faced, and it has never been captured with more breadth and force than in 'Renewal.'  I hope this movie moves many more people off the fence and into action."  Bill McKibben, environmentalist and author of The End of Nature.

Producer Marty Ostrow will be on hand following the film for discussion.
