"Shifting Sands" tells the story of Lake Michigan and the Indiana/Michigan shoreline and how this nearby region, where rare plants grow in the shadows of smokestacks, sparked a
movement for a national park; a movement which eventually led to game-changing
environmental policies with worldwide impact and unique partnerships on the path
to a more sustainable world.

One Earth Film Festival: "At the  Fork"

One Earth Film Festival: "At the Fork"

Saturday, March 4, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

See "At the Fork," a film that offers a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption. With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, together with his vegetarian wife, Lisa, ask the tough questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk and baby-back rib. What they discover are not heartless industrialists, but America's farmers -- real people who, along with John and Lisa Papola, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming arimals for food.
