The WAMM Movie Committee will be showing “Rachel Carson” on Monday, September 9 from 7 to 9 pm at 4200 Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.
The woman who launched the environmental movement. When Silent Spring was published in September 1962 it became an instant bestseller and would go on to spark dramatic changes in the way the government regulated pesticides. Drawn from Carson’s own writings, letters and recent scholarship, the film illuminates both the public and private life of the soft-spoken, shy scientist who launched the modern environmental movement.
(2017, 1 hr, Directed by Michelle Farrari, USA)
Connecting the dots. . . A chance to discuss the film follows the showing.
