Join the GSAS Graduate Student Government, Global Liberal Studies Program and the Sustainability Office
for a series of three award-winning films and dynamic discussions that explore the meaning and value of
ritual practice and personal transformation in the face of global environmental crisis.

Each event will include a screening and a creative-format discussion tying the film to issues
such as how we respond to fear in times of crisis, our relationship to changes in natural cycles,
and our personal experiences of environmental loss and appreciation of all that remains.

The series is free and open to the public. Refreshments and snacks will be served.

** The Sacrifice (Tarkovsky, 1986) — screening & discussion Thurs Sep 27, 5:30-9:00
** Le Quattro Volte (Frammartino, 2011) — screening & discussion Thurs Oct 11, 6:30-9:00
