Once a month from January through June, the Vancouver Watersheds Alliance sponsors a free, environmentally focused film at the Vancouver Community Library, 901 C St. in downtown Vancouver. The films are shown on the last Tuesday of the month, starting at 6 p.m., and complimentary pizza is provided for all attendees. This month, on Tuesday, March 25, the Watersheds Alliances presents "Arise," a film narrated by Daryl Hannah, telling the stories of 13 women in five countries who have initiated transformative environmental projects in their towns and villages.
Films scheduled for April, May, and June are below:
- Tuesday, April 22: "Watershed"
Robert Redford directs a story about the threats to the Colorado River—which provides fresh water for 30 million people—and offers solutions for the future water needs of the American West.
- Tuesday, May 27: "More Than Honey"
A chilling look at Colony Collapse Disorder, a mysterious sydrome that has caused the collapse of bee colonies around the world. Bees are vital for the pollination of fruits and vegetables, and are therefore vital to our food chain.
- Tuesday, June 24: "Idle Threat"
One man’s spirited mission to stop idling engines, which consume more than six billion gallons of gasoline annually in the U.S.—a significant contributor to pollution, respiratory disease, and climate change.
