“ A beautifully composed tribute to visionary thinking and political ingenuity” -- THE NEW YORK TIMES
Film and Discussion ~ Hosted by Beth Fitzgerald
Visually stunning, vastly entertaining and awe-inspiring.
Earth Days looks back to the dawn and development of the modern environmental movement – from it’s post-war rustlings in the 1950’s and the 1962 publication of Rachel Carson’s incendiary bestseller Silent Spring, to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration and the subsequent firestorm of political action.
