Mounts Environmental Film Series is a great opportunity to view environmental films and documentaries that can raise awareness of our relationship to the natural environment, using film as a platform for conversation, education and positive change.
If you’ve experienced the Washed Ashore sculptures on exhibit in the Mounts Botanical Gardens, interacted with them and learned about the plastic pollution in our waterways and the ocean–and even if you haven’t yet, here’s a chance to learn directly from the artist, founder and director of “Washed Ashore: Art To Save The Sea.”
Artist Angela Hazeltine Pozzi and her brilliant staff are featured in this documentary about their collective inspiration and process for creating “Flash,” “Sebastian James,” “Lidia” and all of the whimsical sea creatures for the Washed Ashore exhibit. The film also explains why the Washed Ashore Project is an important tool for educating mankind about the perils of plastic in our world’s oceans.
The viewing will be followed by a dynamic discussion with scientists and environmental advocates, enabling attendees to share thoughts, consider various viewpoints and hear expert perspectives.
