Description:

Join sustainNU for a One Earth Film Festival screening of The Ants & the Grasshopper. This in-person screening is restricted to the Northwestern community of students, faculty, and staff. 

About the film: Anita Chitaya has a gift; she can help bring abundant food from dead soil, she can make men fight for gender equality, and she can end child hunger in her village. Now, to save her home from extreme weather, she faces her greatest challenge: persuading Americans that climate change is real. Traveling from Malawi to America, she meets climate skeptics and despairing farmers. Her journey takes her across all the divisions shaping the US, from the rural-urban divide, to schisms of race, class and gender, to the thinking that allows Americans to believe they live on a different planet from everyone else. It will take all her skill to help Americans free themselves from a logic that is destroying the Earth.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to wear masks, even if they can socially distance.
