Elmhurst College and Elmhurst Cool Cities Coalition will host a screening of the documentary Paris to Pittsburgh on Sunday, March 3, as part of the 2019 One Earth Film Festival.

With the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, citizens around the country are taking matters into their own hands. From coastal cities to America’s heartland, “Paris to Pittsburgh” explores the social and economic impacts to climate change-fueled disasters, and celebrates how Americans are developing and demanding real solutions in the face of climate change.

The One Earth Film Festival presents compelling environmental films and programming to bring about an understanding of climate change, sustainability and the power of people, and to initiate positive actions for the planet. This is the fifth consecutive year Elmhurst Cool Cities and Elmhurst College will partner to showcase a film.

A question and answer period with environmental advocates will follow the film. In addition, representatives from Citizens Climate Lobby, ComEd, DuPage Clean Energy Coalition, Sierra Club River Prairie Group, and Elmhurst Cool Cities will share opportunities for local action on sustainability.

Paris to Pittsburgh will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 3, in the Schaible Science Center, Illinois Hall. Tickets for “Paris to Pittsburgh” are limited, and this movie is expected to sell out.

To reserve in advance, visit Tickets for this and most other One Earth Festival films are free, with a recommended $8 per person contribution to support the festival.
