Mossville Screening & Virtual Q&A
“Striking and Urgent…” (Indie Wire)
Mossville, Louisiana: A once-thriving community founded by formerly enslaved and free people of color, and an economically flourishing safe haven for generations of African American families. Today it’s a breeding ground for petrochemical plants and their toxic black clouds. Many residents are forced from their homes, and those that stay suffer from prolonged exposure to contamination and pollution. Amid this chaos and injustice stands one man who refuses to abandon his family’s land – and his community.
Join our friends at Camden International Film Festival for a special Earth Day edition of their year-round screening series, CIFF Selects+. On CIFF’s website you can catch the award-winning environmental justice documentary, Mossville. Access to stream is $10, and is available from the 17th through the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22nd. Co-presented by Sierra Club Maine.
A virtual Q&A will be held on Earth Day, 4/22 at 7pm with Mossville director Alexander Glustrom, and our own Kelsey Halliday Johnson, ED of SPACE and a Sierra Club Maine trustee.
