The Human Element

Congregational Film Viewing and Discussion

In celebration of Earth Day 2020, the Social Justice Committee and Interfaith Power and Light are offering a chance to view the important film, The Human Element. In this arresting new documentary by the producers of Racing Extinction, Chasing Ice and The Cove, environmental photographer James Balog captures the lives of those on the front lines of climate change. The Human Element inspires us to reevaluate our relationship with the natural world.
