“Symbiotic Earth” explores the life and ideas of Lynn Margulis, a brilliant and radical scientist, whose unconventional theories challenged the male-dominated scientific community and are today fundamentally changing how we look at our selves, evolution, and the environment. This film examines the worldview that has led to climate change and extreme capitalism and offers a new approach to understanding life that encourages a sustainable and symbiotic lifestyle.
The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker John Feldman and writer Dorion Sagan. Read more >Part of our 2017–2018 Environmental Humanities Series.
