May 29th, 9:00 – 11:00 in the IAC Learning Commons room 6011-31

A Plastic Ocean.  A Plastic Ocean begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

 

June 5th, 8:00 – 9:30 AM in the IAC Learning Commons room 6011-31

Our Rising Oceans (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 1).  Our oceans are rising. With human use of hydrocarbons skyrocketing, waters around the globe are getting hotter and, now, this warm sub-surface water is washing into Antarctica’s massive western glaciers causing the glaciers to retreat and break off. Antarctica holds 90% of the world’s ice and 70% of its freshwater, so if even a small fraction of the ice sheet in Antarctica melts, the resulting sea level rise will completely remap the world as we know it – and it is already happening. In the last decade, some of the most significant glaciers here have tripled their melt rate.

 


July 3rd, 1:00 – 3:00 PM in the IAC Learning Commons room 6011-31


Blue Gold.
 
This award-winning documentary, directed by Sam Bozzo, is based on the book Blue Gold: The Fight to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World’s Water by Maude Barlow and Tony Clark. The film examines the problems created by the privatization and commoditization of water.

 



Time and location TBA

Flow: For Love of Water. The global water crisis is examined in this documentary, which spotlights the exploitation of third-world countries for water and sounds an alarm about the disastrous effects of water pollution. Directed by Irena Salina.
