    Starts in about 7 hours30°F Cloudy
  • Jackson Park Fieldhouse, 6401 S. Stony Island Ave., Chicago
    This is the 10 Year Anniversary screening of Home! Join us for a film screening and discussion featuring breathtaking photography of our planet by award-winning photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. In the past 200,000 years, humans have upset four billion years’ worth of evolutionary balance on planet Earth. Humanity has little time to reverse the trend and change its patterns of consumption. Through visually stunning aerial footage from over 50 countries, Yann Arthus–Bertrand shows us a view most of us have never seen. He shares with us his sense of awe about our planet and his concern for its health. With this film, Arthus-Bertrand hopes to provide a stepping-stone to further the call to action to take care of our “Home.”

    Before the film, arrive at 1 p.m. at Jackson Park Fieldhouse for a Jackson Park history tour of the Obama Presidential Center site and the Wooded Isle.

    After the film, participate in facilitated audience dialogue to explore the film’s topics, connections, and opportunities for action. Facilitator: Dawn Posey, Jackson Park Advisory Council.
