Tonight, American University’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking kicks off its eighth annual film series. In conjunction with Filmmakers for Conservation, the School of Communication will be screening a documentary about environmental conservation every Tuesday evening this semester. Some are even produced by current SOC students!
The first in the series, Death at SeaWorld, deals with the implications of keeping killer whales in captivity. The event will include a panel discussion with the author of Death at SeaWorld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity, as well as experts in ocean life conservation. Join Justine Schmidt and Professor Chris Palmer at 7 PM in Wechsler Theater for the start of this exciting series.
