The Human Element
Mary D. Fisher Theatre Tue, Feb 26 1:00 PM
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 environmental photographer James Balog as he explores the impact of wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, a struggling coal mining community, and our changing air. With rare compassion and heart, "The Human Element" highlights Americans who are on the frontlines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.

Description

When climate-change journalist Eiren Caffall was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, she realized that, like the planet, she was slowly drowning. But instead of allowing the nearly invisible effects of her condition to paralyze her, Caffall uses her illness to look at the crisis of climate change in a way that makes “problems we so often push away because of… their apparent distance from daily life, suddenly become intimate and human-scale.“ — Naomi Klein, (Author: "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate")
