The Human Element Film Screening with James Balog

Inside the Greenhouse will be hosting James Balog and a screening of his new film

THE HUMAN ELEMENT
AN EARTH VISION FILM PRODUCTION

We humans are a force of nature. At the same time human activities alter the basic elements of life – earth, air, water, and fire – those elements change human life.

For almost 40 years, photographer James Balog has broken new conceptual and artistic ground on one of the most important issues of our era: human modification of nature. An avid mountaineer with a graduate degree in geography and geomorphology, James is equally at home on a Himalayan peak or a whitewater river, the African savannah or polar icecaps. His new film, THE HUMAN ELEMENT, is an innovative and visually stunning look at how humanity interacts with earth, air, fire and water. 

Inside the Greenhouse works to deepen our understanding of how issues associated with climate change are/can be communicated, by creating artifacts through interactive theatre, film, fine art, performance art, television programming, and appraising as well as extracting effective methods for multimodal climate communication.
