Headwaters at Incarnate Word will be presenting three films that address the intersection between faith and environmentalism in the United States. Participants can register for individual films or all three.

The first, Green Fire, explores the life and legacy of famed conservationist Aldo Leopold and his influence on current projects. Stories of urban children, ranchers, and biologists will teach us how to live on a piece of land without spoiling it.

The second, Renewal, is a documentary on how people from the Buddhists, Christian, Jewish, and Muslims traditions have found ways to be caretakers of the earth in the face of the challenge of environmental degradation.

The final film, Divide in Concord, uses the 1775 Concord patriots ‘shot heard round the world’ as a metaphor for another revolution: that of eighty-four year-old Jean Hill who has challenged the single-service plastic water bottled industry.
