PLANET IN PERIL
A Film Series on Climate Change

How do we understand and respond to climate change, global warming, and the wide range of environmental issues that may seem improbable but overwhelmingly urgent? The need is real and the issues wide ranging: land-clearing and property development, aggregate mining, farming, clear-cut logging, landfilling, garbage dumping, incinerators, water pollution, sewage disposal, illegal fishing, poaching, hydroelectric dams, oil and gas development, flash floods, persistent droughts, spells of unprecedented heat, sudden landslides, raging torrents pouring down from breached glacial lakes, tornadoes. Where do we begin?

The Regina International Film Festival & Awards (RIFFA) and the MacKenzie Art Gallery are pleased to bring to Regina a trilogy of films by multiple award winner, Jennifer Baishwal. Mark your calendar to join us for the screening of three films over three weeks.

Tickets can be purchased here.

This week's film:

 WATERMARK - August 8 – 7 pm

Watermark is a feature documentary film that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use. We see massive floating abalone farms off China’s Fujian coast and the construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world – the Xiluodu, six times the size of the Hoover Dam. We visit the barren desert delta where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean, and the water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka.
