Apri 6 – 10: Anthropocene & Beyond Coal at CIFF40 

CIFF is one of our favorite hometown events. Northeast Ohio Sierra Club is pleased to announce that we’re partnering with the film Anthropocene.

Steve Bradshaw’s Anthopocene is a 90 minute feature documentary exploring whether to declare a new geological epoch in the history of the Earth. We’re living in the Anthopocene, a term popularized by Paul Crutzen, that defines this artificial planet that we have created.

Is our story a comedy, tragedy, or something completely surreal?  Find out with us by checking out Anthropocene screening during the event at Tower City the following days:

Wednesday, April 6th at 11:50 AM
Thursday, April 7th at 2:10 PM
Friday, April 8th at 7:10 PM

Beyond Coal is partnering on Cheshire, Ohio, a documentary about the fate of a small town along the Ohio River that was purchased and leveled by a utility company in an attempt to avoid pollution from a coal-fired power plant.
