FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FEB. 12, 2014
The topic of sustainability hits the silver screen at Triton College with the One Earth Film Festival on Saturday, March 8. Triton is a new partner to the Midwest’s premier environmental film festival that will take place in multiple venues March 7-9.
At 2 p.m., Triton will host the Chicago-area preview screening and discussion of “Jens Jensen The Living Green,” an inspiring one-hour documentary about the famed landscape designer who designed, among other things, Garfield Park Conservatory and Columbus Park, both in Chicago. Jensen had a firm commitment to social justice. He also was a pioneering conservationist who played a hand in the creation of the Cook County Forest Preserves, a number of state parks and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
Filmmaker Cary Lundin will be present at the film screening to discuss the documentary.
The festival is produced by Green Community Connections, an organization dedicated to creating a sustainable future in the Oak Park and River Forest, Ill., area.
The event is free and open to the public. Reservations can be made at https://oneearthfilmfest2014.eventbrite.com. For more information, contact Adrian Fisher at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3578 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
