CONSCIENTIOUS PROJECTOR THIS THURSDAY JANUARY 14 7 p.m
A SEA CHANGE
THE ARMORY CENTER FOR THE ARTS 145 NORTH RAYMOND OLD PASADENA
Imagine a world without fish. Ocean acidification has been called the “evil twin” of climate crisis. Excess carbon dioxide in Earth’s oceans is changing sea water chemistry and could, if unchecked, result in dead oceans, the extinction of sea life and the eradication of the primary protein source of one billion of the world’s people. Barbara Ettinger’s elegiac, beautifully-made, award-winning documentary A Sea Change tells the story of Sven Huseby, a retired history teacher whose love of and concern for oceans, ocean life and his grandson Elias’ future takes him on explorations to Alaska, Washington state, California and Norway in a fact-finding investigation that brings the looming global tragedy to light.
A community discussion will follow the film. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons. Conscientious Projector is sponsored by Sustainable World, a Peace & Justice Ministry of All Saints Church, in association with The Armory Center for the Arts.
