- 10 – 15
Join us for a special screening of the documentary THE HUMAN ELEMENT with an introduction by film director Matthew Testa.
We humans are a force of nature. At the same time, human activities alter the basic elements of life – earth, air, water, and fire – those elements change human life. In this riveting and visually rich drama blending art and science, we follow renowned National Geographic photographer James Balog as he explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, a struggling coal mining community, and our changing air supply. With rare compassion and heart, THE HUMAN ELEMENT highlights Americans on the front lines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.
5:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room.
