Scientists as Heroes: Researchers Advocating for the Earth

 
INDIANAPOLIS – Scientists are working across the planet to understand what human activities are doing to the natural world – and what can be done to fix the problem. Meet some of these heroes during the Fall 2014 Indianapolis Interfaith Eco-Film Series, continuing with Rock the Boat on Friday, Oct. 10th.
 
All films will be shown at Epworth United Methodist Church, 6450 Allisonville Road, at 7:30 p.m. on the second Friday of each month. Co-sponsors of the film series are Cross and Crown Lutheran Church, Epworth United Methodist Church, First Friends Meeting and the Sierra Club's Hoosier Chapter.
 

Oct. 10: Rock the Boat

When a government agency decides that the Los Angeles River is not worthy of environmental protection, a biologist becomes a whistle blower, a writer trades pen for paddle, and together with others they change the course of history in a local battle with national significance.

For the past hundred years we’ve built our cities and roads, factories, dams and agricultural centers wherever we’ve wanted to, our engineering often triumphing over the natural lay of the land, more balanced design and even common sense. With climate change and an impending worldwide water crisis, we are now forced to examine the impact on nature of our urban lifestyle.

With striking images of the L.A. River, insightful interviews and a soft spot for humor, Rock the Boat documents the intrepid fight to renew the river and the city itself, and affirms the power of committed individuals to jump-start that change. (54 minutes. www.rocktheboatfilm.com)
