Tales from Planet Earth is a three-day film festival featuring environmental films from around the world. From the fanciful to the profound, the films selected should engage audiences in thoughtful discussion of environmental issues and the film media to capture and to examine those issues.
The festival is a public outreach event from the Center for Culture, History, and Environment within the Gaylord Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies.
The festival kicks off at the Wisconsin Union Theater (Friday, November 6, 7:00 PM) with keynote address from MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient and founder of Sustainable South Bronx, Majora Carter.
All festival events are free and open to the public as space/seating accommodates.
