“The Ants and the Grasshopper” Documentary Screening
October 26, 2021 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
The Center for Earth Ethics, Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary and the Kairos Center will co-host a screening of new documentary by Raj Patel called “The Ants and the Grasshopper.” REGISTER
The film follows Anita Chitaya of Malawi as she goes to the US Midwest, and communities of color in Detroit and the White House. She sparks discourse about climate (and food justice, gender, race, etc) along the way, including using her Biblical fluency to talk to climate skeptics. This is intention from Raj Patel:
As the COP26 climate summit approaches in November, we very much hope that communities of people of faith are able to heed the call for justice, and that this film might serve as the basis for taking action.
A panel discussion will follow moderated by EDS at Union’s Dean Kelly Brown Douglas.
