Fayetteville is set to be one of the first 10 cities in the nation to screen the feature-length film, “Carbon Nation.”
The University of Arkansas Global Campus theater on the downtown square will host the screening of the documentary film about climate change solutions and their impact on social, economic and national security issues.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 15. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A session with Peter Byck, the film’s director.
Byck, a veteran documentarian with more than 20 years experience, won a SXSW Jury Prize for his first documentary, Garbage, has also made short documentaries on the making of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films.
Free tickets are available to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis and because seating is limited, tickets must be reserved online in advance.
The Global Campus (School of Continuing Education and Academic Outreach), the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Arkansas, the University of Arkansas Applied Sustainability Center housed in the Sam M. Walton College of Business, the League of Women Voters Washington County, Arkansas Interfaith Power & Light, and the Sierra Club collaborated to bring the documentary and its director to Fayetteville.
