This week’s Green Lens Film Series will present “Cowspiracy” at The Egyptian Theatre this Thursday, September 21st beginning at 7:00 pm. “Cowspiracy” is a controversial and provocative documentary which argues that animal agriculture has much to do with pollution worldwide. The Green Lens Film Series is FREE and open to the public.

The Green Lens Film Series consists of six stunning documentaries — all released in the last few years and none shown in DeKalb before, that offer memorable views, perspectives, and film techniques. The Green Lens Environmental Film Series will be shown on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in September and October.

Other films view the planet from space, watch glaciers melt with time-lapse photography, examine animal agriculture, discuss pundits for hire, and look at the world through the eyes of an anthropologist and her daughter.

The film series is a collaboration between environmentalist Nancy Proesel of DeKalb, as well as NIU scientists Reed Scherer and Pat Vary, and NIU film scholar Jeff Chown. Support was provided by many individuals and NIU departments, the Egyptian Theatre, Tapa La Luna, and DeKalb Stands, an Indivisible group.

Audiences will be invited to stay after each film for a conversation with NIU faculty and, on September 28, with the film’s director.

Come be a part of this exciting opportunity to see some great films on the big screen and learn more about our world.
