Enjoy a preview of the One Earth Film Festival, the Midwest’s premiere environmental film festival, slated for March 1-10. Watch an 8-minute film inspired by a Springfield, Illinois, youngster’s first visit to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Joseph Goldstein recalls being awestruck by “the waters, the fishing, the stars, the silence.” At 13, a leukemia diagnosis put all adventuring on hold, but he “made a wish” to save the Boundary Waters from the threat of a sulfide ore copper mine on its border. That wish became his mission to teach America's youth how to cherish and advocate for nature. After the film, Ana Garcia Doyle, One Earth Film Festival director, will lead you through a lively discussion of the film and its lessons for our own natural areas here in Illinois.
