To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we’re hosting a special screening party featuring the Emmy-nominated film Earthrise.
Directed by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. This iconic image had a powerful impact on the Apollo 8 astronauts and the world, offering a perspective that inspired the creation of Earth Day and transcended national, political, and religious boundaries. Told fifty years later, Earthrise compels us to remember this shift and to reflect on the Earth as a shared home. As the scope of our interconnectedness is revealed all the more in the wake of this pandemic, the Earthrise photograph offers a reminder of the great responsibility that we hold together: to care for each other and for the world we inhabit.
Join us after the film for a panel discussion with Emmanuel and special guests, moderated by David Holbrooke
