Green Screens – The Falls
Green Screens partners films from the National Film Board with experts and panellists from the Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy.
Our third screening will feature The Falls (1991): For 300 years, Niagara Falls has been an icon of the North American landscape. It is now also one of the world's most toxic waterways. Here, 25 percent of the world's fresh water supply is being systematically poisoned, but the 11 million people who visit every year seldom notice. Intimate in its detail, and irreverent in its approach, The Falls is an offbeat portrait of this landscape--too wild to be classified as a documentary, too true to be fiction.
Following the film a panel discussion will take place to discuss Great Lakes concerns now and then. CIELAP has invited the director of this film, Kevin McMahon, to discuss The Falls and the film that he is soon to release, also on the topic of the Great Lakes.
When: Monday, September 24 2007, 7 PM
