July Green Drinks: Fire and Flood film screening
July 13 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us for July Green Drinks for a Sneak-Peek Screening of Fire and Flood: Queer Resilience in the Era of Climate Change. Queer Ecojustice Project and their fiscal host Out For Sustainability are sharing the draft sneak-peek screening of the Fire & Flood Film to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ vulnerability to climate change, encourage conversations on resilience preparedness, and to fundraise for the completion of the project.
This film tells the story of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the fires in Santa Rosa, California, two-near simultaneous climate-related disasters in the fall of 2017, through the voices of LGBTQ people who lived through them and were part of the community response.
You can expect a powerful and engaging 104-min storyline full of brilliant, insightful interviews with over 20 queer and trans people recounting their stories of disaster and resilience.
We will be offering two screenings. One with alternating English-Spanish captions for bilingual audiences, and one with English-only captions for the hearing impaired (provided by the Scottish Queer International Film Festival).
This draft film is not yet rated. It contains some complex themes, discussion of potentially triggering incidents, and infrequent mature language. It is recommended for adult audiences or for young adult audiences who have access to adult mentors for discussion and processing. Watch the Trailer.
TEC will collect voluntary donations for this event, and are providing a sliding scale that will not turn people away for lack of funds. We hope you can join us!
