The Gregg Museum of Art and Design brings back its Eco Film Series in celebration of Earth Month with three free screenings of new and exciting nature films.

Tuesday, April 4, 3 p.m. — The Human Element chronicles the quest of environmental photographer James Balog to show how the four elements — air, earth, water and fire — are being altered by the fifth element of human activity. The documentary reveals how global warming has drastically contributed to wildfires and hurricanes that disrupt the human-nature balance. With rare compassion and heart, The Human Element highlights Americans on the front lines of climate change, inspiring us to reevaluate our relationship with the natural world. 

Wednesday, April 5, 3 p.m. — RiverBlue follows Canadian river conservationist, professor and paddler Mark Angelo as he embarks on an unprecedented three-year river journey around the world to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries: fashion. Narrated by clean-water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. 

Thursday, April 6, 6 p.m. — 2040 is a hybrid feature/documentary that looks to the future but is vitally important now. Australian actor, director and producer Damon Gameau, motivated by his 4-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, embarks on a global journey to meet the innovators and changemakers pioneering the best solutions already available to us today to improve the health of our planet and societies. Gameau interweaves dramatic sequences and sophisticated visual effects to draw a positive portrait of what could be instead of the current dystopian future we are so often shown.
