Series: Portland EcoFilm Festival
This is part of 2019 Portland EcoFilm Festival
Self-described “jaded millennial” Connor DeVane treks 2,700 miles from Canada to Mexico on the CDT as he seeks hope in the face of climate breakdown. A physical journey through environments both harsh and breathtakingly beautiful, this film shares the stories of the community activists and problem solvers working on a spectrum of approaches to climate action, including grassroots community organizing, land regeneration to store CO2 in soil, non-violent civil disobedience, and more. Connor's journey intersects with a host of diverse and powerful voices united in not only picking us up off the floor, but also to shoving us out the door to build a better future.
Directed by Connor DeVane. Filmmaker in attendance.
WHERE LIFE BEGINS
Along the Arctic Coast, at the northernmost point on American soil, we explore the inseparable bond between a Gwich’in mother and her child, a caribou mother and her calf, the sacred and fragile moments after birth and the importance of protecting the place "Where Life Begins."
Directed by Katie Schuler. Sponsored by Crag Law Center
