Please join KCET, the Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies (LENS) in the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA and GSA Melnitz Movies for a screening of three new episodes of KCET's Original series EARTH FOCUS, including the World Premiere of "Dying Oceans."
The screening will be introduced by UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television documentary film professor Kristy Guevara-Flanagan will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker David Grabias, EARTH FOCUS Executive Producer/KCET Chief Creative Officer Juan Devis, and Executive Director of The Bay Foundation Tom Ford that will be moderated by LENS co-founder and EARTH FOCUS consulting producer Jon Christensen.
EARTH FOCUS in partnership with the Thomson Reuters Foundation features investigative reports and in-depth stories about our changing environment and how it affects people around the world. In the new season, EARTH FOCUS examines how communities are transitioning and adapting from different energy sources and how the laws of supply and demand affect the environment and people in different ways. The new season of EARTH FOCUS airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. con KCET in Southern California and on Wed., Apr. 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Link TV Nationwide (DirecTV 375 and DISH Network 9410) with streaming on kcet.org/earthfocus and linktv.org/earthfocus
The three episodes of EARTH FOCUS being screened are as follows:
“Building a Future”
Wood is found in countless products that consumers use every day and a country’s importation of lumber tends to rise in correlation with its gross domestic product. Travel to the frontline of the illegal lumber trade in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest and see how indigenous groups are now organizing to protect what forest remains.
Faced with historic droughts, dairy communities are finding innovative alternatives to lessen their environmental impact. Travel to a village in Kenya where an alternative milk is becoming big business. Drought in the Sub-Saharan region has long made dairy farming virtually impossible, but it has also made the commercialization of milk made by camels a viable solution.
“Dying Oceans” *World Premiere*
The ocean bears the brunt of global warming, but teams of Californians are scrambling to save this precious resource. Rising sea temperatures, acidification and pollution are killing important species that ensure ecological biodiversity. Travel with various teams – scientists and diver volunteers – who are committed to protecting various underwater species threatened by the invasion of sea urchins.
Launched in 2007, EARTH FOCUS is the longest-running investigative environmental news program on U.S. television. The series provides audiences with urgent local and global environmental coverage that spotlights in-depth reports on key issues such as endangered species, climate change, environmental health and sustainable practices. With new episodes focused on the global concerns of protecting our oceans, exploring the devastating environmental impacts of different communities and the growth of the solar industry, EARTH FOCUS continues its commitment to educate audiences about the global issues impacting our planet.
