Join us for our next movie night:
Sunday, Oct. 7th at 6:30 PM
Mission Blue, an Emmy award winning documentary, highlights legendary oceanographer, marine biologist, environmentalist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Sylvia Earle. The film follows Dr. Earle on her global quest to protect our ocean—and the extraordinary marine life that call them home—from the powerful forces of pollution, overfishing, and climate change.
For generations, we have believed that the ocean is too big to fail—but that’s no longer true. And having logged more than 7000 hours underwater, Dr. Earle is uniquely positioned to help us understand why. As a witness to oceanic and marine life change over the past 60 years, Sylvia is a steadfast warrior, leading the charge to restore the ocean to health before it’s too late. And Mission Blue is her warning call.
View the film’s stunning photography on the big screen and join us in a brief discussion following the film about the impact that the environment’s health has on us. Quinn Underwood, director of Charlotte Area Recycling Authority, will be leading the discussion.
