KS Wild and Rogue Riverkeeper are hosting a screening of two environmental films in a new Fall Film Series, to inspire activism through film.

The agencies will screen “Sisters In Arms at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, at the Southern Oregon University Science Building, 1250 Ashland St., Ashland. This 70-minute film that depicts what it looks like to be a young environmental advocate today.

With an introduction by the creator, Henri De Gerlanche, and KS Wild is also proud to host a very special virtual Q&A afterwards with Julia Butterfly Hill. This inspiring forest activist spent 738 days on top of a majestic sequoia in Northern California to save a 1,000-year-old forest from being clearcut.

Tickets cost $20 but are free for SOU students and faculty with ID. Space is limited, reserve your tickets today!

Doors Open at 6 p.m. The film starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by a 7:45 p.m. raffle drawing, and the virtual Q&A held from 8 to 9 p.m.

About the film: “Sisters in Arms” follows Anuna and Adelaide (Belgium), Luisa (Germany), Lena (France), Leah (Uganda), and Artemisia (Brazil), telling their stories of becoming influential and committed leaders in their communities and countries for environmental justice and protection. Their struggles are presented alongside those of our special guest, Julia Butterfly Hill. The film follows the journey of all these young women, each in their own way, but all driven by a unique energy, these “sisters in arms.”

We hope you join to find inspiration and to ask Julia Butterfly Hill your questions after watching the film.
