Chasing Ice for Green Screen launch tonight
This year’s Green Screen Environmental Film Series is off to a very cool start tonight with the screening of the award-winning Chasing Ice. The Benefit Wine & Cheese Premiere will also feature The Last Reef in 3D.
The launch will take place at the Digicel IMAX Theatre, at One Woodbrook Place in Port-of-Spain—the perfect setting for the stunning cinematography of tonight’s films.
Wine and light refreshments will be served from 6 to 7 pm, before brief remarks by Ulrich Kinne, the German Embassy’s Deputy Head of Mission. The Embassy is a sponsor of the annual series, now in its third year.
A release from the organisers said other sponsors include Medulla Art Gallery, the T&T Film Festival, the Global Environment Fund Small Grants Program—UNDP, Drink! Lounge & Bistro, and the T&T Guardian.
The series continues until November 13, with some 15 films—including five local ones—highlighting various environmental issues, such as Nothing Like Chocolate; Burning in the Sun; A Fierce Green Fire; and Bitter Seeds. Local films include Earth Water Woman; and The Amerindians; as well as Sustain T&T’s own film, A Sea Change.
Screenings are free to the public and will take place at the National Museum, at Medulla Art Gallery and UWI.
Tonight’s feature movie, Chasing Ice, dramatically shows the effects of climate change on glaciers through spectacular time-lapse images. The Last Reef (3D) explores the complex world of the ocean’s coral reefs
After the screening, there will be an after-party at Drink! Lounge & Bistro on Rosalino Street, Woodbrook.
