Join us on September 27th from 6-7p in WCP 3.116. "Felicia and the Octopus Fisherwoman" has already been screened at the Smithsonian, Yale’s Environmental Film Festival, and an Environmental Film Festival in D.C. You can read more about the film at this link:

We’re so excited to share director José Carlos Pons’ work and to host a conversation with him about the film’s themes.            

Director’s Statement: “Exploitation does not know of political walls or species boundaries. Humans are just another species in the kingdom of life—if humans want to protect their environment they must start with our own kind. As the story of Felicia shows, vicious cycles of poverty and degradation often keep people in rural communities tied to diminishing stocks of natural resources for their subsistence. Until these people have more economic and political alternatives for their development, society cannot expect them to protect the environment as they would like.”
