Earth Day Film Fest

We're marking Earth Day (4/22) with a homegrown film festival. We'll look at movies where plants - and sometimes plankton - are the protagonists.

In Little Shop of Horrors an ambitious florist finds that cross-pollination isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In the film Swamp Thing the world is ravaged by environmental extremes. The solution? Create a human/plant hybrid. In Soylent Green, the world is bursting at the seams. Overpopulation has created a housing crisis and food shortage. A high-energy nutritious plankton wafer has been designed to solve the hunger crisis. It works. Everyone loses their appetite when word gets out what soylent green actually is.

From the cult classics to mainstream movies, it's an examination of the films that take on what happens if we push Mother Nature to her limit.
