Why does an ordinary man suddenly decide to save a river, why are megafires now a real threat, what happens when a filmmaker finds that the political has become very personal, what stories to we choose to tell, and what happens when your environmental art exhibition is interrupted by terrorist attacks? These powerful environmental short films from Bay Area directors are inspiring, thought-provoking, and empowering. Watch and learn, then stay for the filmmaker Q&A that follows.
