DC Environmental Film Festival: The Human Element
April 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Montgomery County GreenFest partners are proud to join the DC Environmental Film Festival to present three documentary screenings in April at Brookside Gardens. These environmentally themed films are offered as part of Earth Day educational activities and lead up to GreenFest, which is Montgomery County’s largest environmental festival. GreenFest will take place on Sunday, April 28 from 11am – 4pm at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD. For more information about GreenFest, please visit https://montgomerycountygreenfest.org/
Renowned photographer James Balog (Chasing Ice) uses his camera to reveal how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans. Following the four classical elements — air, earth, fire, and water — to frame his journey, Balog explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal mining, and the changes in the air we breathe. With compassion and heart, this film tells an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature.
