The Wild Equity Institute is a partner of the 2nd annual San Francisco Green Film Festival, which runs March 1-7, 2012. This year’s Green Film Festival includes premieres of 40 international films focused on the environment, sustainability and other green issues, as well as many filmmakers and panel discussions.
WEI is honored to co-present the film Green Fire by local filmmakers Ann and Steven Dunsky, who also created the film Butterflies and Bulldozers. Green Fire looks into the life of Aldo Leopold, one of our greatest and influential conservation heroes.
“The first full-length documentary film ever made about legendary environmentalist Aldo Leopold, Green Fire highlights Leopold’s extraordinary career, tracing how he shaped and influenced the modern environmental movement. Leopold remains relevant today, inspiring projects all over the country that connect people and land.” http://www.greenfiremovie.com/
Aldo Leopold’s vision of humanity’s relationship with wilderness and his work in conservation has influenced many and connects with WEI’s mission to unite the grassroot conservation and environmental justice movements in campaigns that build a healthy and sustainable global community for people and the plants and animals that accompany us on Earth.
