Join us as we celebrate the Santa Monica Public Library’s annual Green Prize for Sustainable Literature Awards with a screening of BLUE.
The Green Prize is a book award, presented by Santa Monica’s Public Library and the Office of Sustainability and the Environment. In 2007, the Green Prize was created in order to recognize the authors, illustrators, photographers and publishers whose goal is to broaden the public’s awareness of sustainability. To date, the Green Prize for Sustainable Literature has recognized over a hundred title.
BLUE is the story our generation needs to hear. The industrialization that has occurred in the oceans over the last century, mirrors the events that triggered mass extinctions on land. Industrial scale fishing, habitat destruction, species loss and pollution have placed the ocean in peril. The very nature of the sea is being irretrievably altered. BLUE is a provocative journey into the ocean realm, witnessing this critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice.
A Panel discussion will follow the screening.
The panel will include the film’s Director, Karina Holden as well as other experts in the field.
