Local Filmmaker Brings Climate Change “DOWN TO EARTH” on August 11

The Phippsburg Congregational Church, will host a FREE public screening of the timely and inspiring documentary, “Down To Earth: Climate Justice Stories” at the Linden Tree Meeting House, at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 11.  Maine filmmaker, Anne D. (“Andy”) Burt, will be on hand to discuss the film and share resources for further action.

In “Down To Earth: Climate Justice Stories,” thirteen Mainers of diverse ages, cultures, and genders share their experience, passion, and wisdom as they address climate injustice. Some challenge communities and institutions to resist fossil fuel expansion. Some embrace ancestral and current struggles for land and water rights. Some pursue new ways to lighten their load on the earth's resources. Some decide to take bigger risks. All share their courage, hope, and determination to stay engaged with the global climate change crisis. The resulting film has, “the power to change hearts and inspire bold actions and solutions,” attests Anne D. Burt on the website, www.downtoearthstories.org.

The Phippsburg Congregational Church will host this event as part of a series on “earthly gifts.” The series continues through September, when worship services will explore the lessons, blessings, and challenges of forests, land, wilderness, and rivers. People of all ages and perspectives are invited to attend the film screening and further events.

The August 11th screening is free to the public (donations welcome). The meeting house is wheelchair-accessible and light refreshments will be served. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the film starts at 7:00.
