Join us on Tuesday, October 26th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm ET, for a screening of The Ants and The Grasshopper. This new film, directed by Raj Patel, follows Anita Chitaya as she battles hunger, sexism and climate change in her home in Malawi, through the heartland of the US midwest, to communities of people of color in Detroit, to the White House. Despite a language barrier, she’s able to reach patriarchs, climate skeptics, and deniers of equality through her fluency with the Bible.
Before the film screening, there will be a welcome by the film’s co-director, Raj Patel. Immediately following the screening there will be a panel discussion moderated by The Very Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union. The panel will feature The Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, Director of the Kairos Center; Karenna Gore, Director of The Center for Earth Ethics, and Francine Johnson, Mississippi Poor People’s Campaign and Mileston Co-operative.
