Playing at the Mead, Sunday, December 2: A Fierce Green Fire

News posts

Making its New York premiere on Sunday, December 2, at the Museum’s Margaret Mead Film Festival, A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet takes viewers deep inside the history of environmental movements around the world.


Producer, writer, and director Mark Kitchell will be in attendance and, aptly, A Fierce Green Fire is being presented in conjunction with the recent reopening of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial, a tribute to Roosevelt’s enduring conservation legacy.

The film tells a story of passionate pioneers from John Muir and the early days of the Sierra Club to activists like Brazil’s Chico Mendes to grassroots supporters of some 30,000 organizations around the world today pressing for safe water, clean air, alternative energy, and a global solution to climate change. The many voices heard here add up to an urgent call for involvement.  “We are not passengers on Spaceship Earth,” says Stewart Brand, creator of the Whole Earth Catalog, in the film. “We are Earth.”
