Patagonia’s Presents: Public Trust – virtual screening
September 29, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
On September 29th, Heirloom Rustic Ales will be offering a streaming link to Patagonia’s new documentary film, Public Trust.
In a time of growing polarization, Americans still share something in common: 640 million acres of public land. Held in trust by the federal government for all citizens of the United States, these places are a stronghold against climate change, sacred to native people, home to wildlife and intrinsic to our national identity. But today, despite support from voters across the political spectrum, they face unprecedented threats from extractive industries and the politicians in their pockets. Part love letter, part political exposé, PUBLIC TRUST investigates how we arrived at this precarious moment through three heated conflicts—a national monument in the Utah desert, a proposed mine in the Boundary Waters and oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—and makes a case for their continued protection.
The event is totally free of charge, and you can watch on any phone, laptop, or computer with a good internet connection and streaming capability. We hope you’ll join us for this thought provoking film on America’s public lands.
***We will post link the day of the event. Your screening will begin on 9/29 at 5pm CT on the dot, and viewers will not be able to pause or rewind, just like in a real theater!
