On Thursday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m., Conscientious Projector celebrates its 10th anniversary with Elemental. An enlightening documentary that travels to three continents to tell the stories of three passionate activists, each dedicated to making their dreams of healing the earth come true. India government official Rajendra Singh has taken on the monumental task of cleaning up the tragic pollution of the sacred Ganges River; Canadian indigenous people’s advocate Eriel Deranger faces personal challenges as she fights to stop construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline; and Australian inventor, entrepreneur and naturalist Jay Harman seeks investors for a technological breakthrough he hopes will help remove carbon from the atmosphere. Co-producer/directors Gayatri Roshan and Emmanuel Vaughan Lee have created a disquietingly frank and revealing film that is also stunningly beautiful and deeply compassionate in its depiction of the human spirit in action.
Elemental screens at The Armory Center for the Arts. A community discussion follows the film. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
