Overview A River Changes Course

Director: Kalyanee Mam
Cambodia, 2013, 83 mins. 

Kalyanee Mam’s beautiful award-winning documentary is an intimate portrait of three Cambodian families struggling to maintain their ways of life amid environmental degradation caused by development. Instead of delving into the politics of their plight, Ms. Mam delivers a universal story of families making enormous sacrifices while the natural world slowly buckles under the demands of globalization. – synopsis adapted from The New York Times. 7:30pm $12, $7 mbrs. 
Co-hosted by Baltimore Green Works and Films For Action Baltimore.

Baltimore Green Week - April 18-26, 2014
Each April, as Earth Day nears, BGW hosts Baltimore Green Week, a week-long series of programs focused on promoting environmental awareness and best sustainable practices in and around Baltimore. In an effort to highlight local resources, BGW partners with local businesses, organizations, and individuals who work to provide earth friendly and sustainable products and services to our community. The series offers the public a variety of educational workshops, lectures, films, tours, and hands-on projects where they have the chance to take part in discussions and begin offering solutions surrounding issues such as climate change, sustainable food and agriculture, water conservation, and energy efficiency within the home.

Baltimore Green Week is produced by Baltimore Green Works
