A free screening of Elemental, the inaugural film of a new documentary film series "The Elements: An Annual Environmental Film Series."

Award-winning and highly acclaimed, Elemental tells the inspiring stories of three activists' efforts to protect air, water, and earth around the world, a sort of call for global action. As described on the film’s website, the audience meets "Rajendra Singh, an Indian government official gone rogue, on a 40-day pilgrimage down India's once pristine Ganges River, now polluted and dying;"  Eriel Deranger in northern Canada, "campaigning tirelessly against the Tar Sands and its proposed 2,000 mile Keystone XL Pipeline, which are destroying indigenous communities and threatening an entire continent;" and Jay Harman, Australian inventor and entrepreneur, who "searches for investors willing to risk millions on his conviction that nature's own systems hold the key to our world's ecological problems, and has created a revolutionary device that he believes can slow down global warming, but will it work?"

Sponsored by the Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District, Middlesex Community College Environmental Science Program, The Rockfall Foundation, and Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts and College of the Environment.
