Film - Earth Days

In conjunction with the exhibit, Searching for the Seventies: The Documerica Photography Project, the Charles Guggenheim Center for Documentary Film presents Earth Days (2009; 102 mins.), that looks back to the dawn and development of the modern environmental movement—from its post-war rustlings in the 1950s 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. Filmmaker Robert Stone is scheduled to introduce the screening. Presented in partnership with the 2013 Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.

Event begins at 7:00PM
