Screening includes a pre-recorded filmmaker Q&A.

This program will transport you across the globe for five unique perspectives on pressing environmental issues. From bat experts in India, to lumberjacks in Japan, to snowboarders in Sweden, these five films exemplify the interconnectedness of our experiences and challenges in the face of climate change and biodiversity collapse.

Artist Mariola Wawrzusiak-Borcz roams post-industrial areas in search of scrap metal. During the welding process she creates the sculptures of endangered animals and children affected by war. Her critique of the ravages of civilization drives her obsessive need to create in spite of her painful hand condition.
