Thu 4/13 @ 6:30–9PM
It’s not quite Earth Day yet, but as a run-up — or dramatizing a philosophy that every day is Earth Day — the college town of Kent hosts the 11th Annual “WHO’S YOUR MAMA?” Environmental Film Festival.
This is a feature-length program of international short films that address environmental concerns in one way or another, from how a Seattle citizen-participation mural commemorates a Pacific fisherman’s bonding with a humpback whale to the story of a much-celebrated music ensemble in Paraguay that uses instruments recycled from trash.
Films will be screened in Kent State University’s Student Center KIVA Auditorium, and just so there’s nothing embarrassing in the manner of Al Gore’s electric bill for his mansion, know that electricity used for the projector is planned to be provided by a solar trailer. Admission is $5 for the general public, $3 for students and seniors.
