The next film in our Environmental Justice Film Series will be shown on Thursday, February 20th at 7:00 PM.
(2019) The River and the Wall follows five friends on an immersive adventure through the unknown wilds of the Texas borderlands as they travel 1200 miles from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. They set out to document the borderlands and explore the potential impacts of a border wall on the natural environment, but as the wilderness gives way to the more populated and heavily trafficked Lower Rio Grande Valley, they come face-to-face with the human side of the immigration debate and enter uncharted emotional waters. The film is 100 minutes, and after we watch it, we’ll discuss what actions we can take on this and other environmental justice issues.
This event is hosted by Berrien UU Fellowship President Harvey Johnson and is free and open to the public. Free popcorn is included; BYOB encouraged. Doors open at 6:30 PM, so come early, get yourself settled and enjoy some popcorn before the show begins at 7:00!
