About the Event

Join us for the 13th annual One Earth Film Festival led by none other than the incredible Ana Garcia Doyle!  This evening, hosted at Kehrein Center for the Arts and facilitated by the theater’s director, Reesheda Graham Washington, will illuminate the presence of women of color as advocates for the earth and both its beauties and challenges. Together we will view 2 films. “A Good Neighbor” is a feature-length documentary about a Latina single mother’s fight against racism and climate change as she campaigns for city council in one of the nation’s most polluted zip codes. Farhoud Meybodi’s film, “Earthbound,” a documentary that reveals a catastrophic plastic waste crisis in Nairobi, and the ways that Nzambi Matee risks everything to pioneer technology that transforms plastic waste into sustainable paving bricks in her hometown. A former engineer in the oil and gas industry, Nzambi walked away from a lucrative career after a trip to the coastal city of Mombasa, where she discovered a sea of plastic bags and bottles in the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. This inspired Nzambi to create a possible solution to the country’s plastics problem by converting waste into sustainable materials. 

After the films, we will engage in a facilitated discussion that highlights the unwavering commitment Matee has to her community and country, and the ways that women of color have ALWAYS been involved in ecological and environmental advocacy, debunking the myths that decenter their historical and impactful participation.

Doors open at 5pm; admission includes one (1) drink ticket and plant-powered refreshments!
