While the rest of Westport barbecues, swims, and takes off for the Vineyard, Westport’s Green Task Force is hard at work.
It’s not an easy sell — what with cookouts, sailing and folks taking off for Nantucket — but tonight at Earthplace the Task Force is presenting an special screening of a very important (and serious) film.
“A Fierce Green Fire” is “the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement.” The film explores 50 years of grassroots and global activism, in areas like conservation and climate change.
But it’s not all gloom and doom. There’s a light food-and-wine reception at 6 p.m. After the 7 p.m. screening, there’s a Q-and-A with filmmaker Mark Kitchell.
Still unsure whether to ditch burgers on the deck, or kayaking to Cockenoe, for tonight’s event?
Plus — during the reception — “Pump It Up, Baby” will play on a continuous loop.
It’s a mockumentary about septic systems.
That should help make your decision easier.
One way or the other.
(Tickets are $7 online, $9 at the door.)
