Time: 7:00 pm | Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center

 

Read "Climate: A Time to Choose" by James Gerardo Lamb in the Fall 2015 Berkeley Review of Latin American Studies.

“Time to Choose” is the first comprehensive examination of how we can successfully address climate change and the bigger challenge of global sustainability.  The film describes the climate crisis, but more importantly shows how we can address it amidst the ongoing struggles of global sustainability, economic development, inequality, and human health. 96 minutes.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Academy Award-winning director, Charles Ferguson.

 ... "spectacular cinematography.  Ferguson filmed all over the world, and the magnificent natural vistas poignantly underscore what we have to lose." — Hollywood Reporter

Free tickets will be available at the door and will be distributed on a first come first served basis.

We ask that audience members be in their seats by 6:50 pm.  Please keep your ticket with you at all times.
