Wrenched Advertisement in Red Square

On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, CNDLS co-sponsored a screening of the documentary Wrenched as part of the 23rd Environmental Film Festival in DC, and a collaboration with the Georgetown University Center for the Environment, the Science, Technology and International Affairs program, the Department of Biology, and the Georgetown Environment Initiative. Wrenched focuses on Edward Abbey, a colorful pioneer in eco-activism during the 1970s and ’80s and author of the The Monkeywrench Gang, a novel that continues to inspire an irreverent style of environmental civil disobedience. Following the screening, there was a post-film panel discussion with Jasmina Bojic (Founder and Director of the United Nations Association Film Festival), Edward M. Barrows (Director of Georgetown University Center for the Environment), James C. Olsen (Philosophy Department and Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship), Colin Hickey (Philosophy Department) and Cosima Dannoritzer (documentary filmmaker with Twin Time TV).
