Nov 9

On Screen/in Person: Love Thy Nature 

Wilson Auditorium - 7:30 PM

Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature is a cinematic journey into the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. Neeson is the voice of Homo Sapiens - our collective humankind - who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we are separate from nature. Through Sapiens' journey, the film reveals how a connection with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches the very core of what it means to be human. Interweaving mesmerizing imagery and interview footage, Love Thy Nature is a guided tour of our relationship with nature that proposes new approaches to a sustainable future. There will be a post screening Q&A with the director Sylvie Rokab .

Drones are in the news.

This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions. She teaches at Lafayette College and The New School, Parsons School of Design.
