Free

The Institute on the Environment, the Bell Museum, University Services Office of Sustainability and University Dining Services host a Sustainability Film Series from February to May. Films are selected to reflect issues that resonate with University students, faculty and staff.

 

Thank you for the Rain
Five years ago Kisilu, a Kenyan farmer, started to use his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the damages of climate change. When a violent storm throws him and a Norwegian filmmaker together we see him transform from a father, to community leader to an activist on the global stage at the UN Climate Talks in Paris, COP21.

Thank You For The Rain addresses a range of issues linked to climate change, including climate justice, urbanization, gender equality, education, access to water, climate refugees, and adaptation.

Watch the trailer! More info can be found here.
