GREEN FIRE: ALDO LEOPOLD AND A LAND ETHIC FOR OUR TIME (USA, 2011, 60 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere Leopold biographer and conservation biologist Curt Meine serves as the on-screen guide for this film, the first feature documentary on Aldo Leopold, arguably the greatest conservationist of the 20th century. The film examines Leopold’s thinking, renewing his idea of a land ethic for a population facing 21st century ecological challenges. Green Fire describes the formation of Leopold’s idea, exploring how it changed one man and later permeated through all arenas of conservation. Drawing on Leopold’s life and experiences, the film explores the deep impact of his thinking on conservation projects around the world today. Through these examples, viewers are challenged to contemplate their own relationship with the land community. Directed and produced by Ann Dunsky, Steven Dunsky and David Steinke.

Introduced by Jeffrey Stine, Chair, Division of Medicine and Science, National Museum of American History and Buddy Huffaker, Executive Director, Aldo Leopold Foundation. Discussion with filmmakers Ann Dunsky, Steven Dunsky and David Steinke and William Meadows, President, The Wilderness Society, follows screening.

Shown with AMERICA’S LOST LANDSCAPE: THE TALLGRASS PRAIRIE as part of the "Landscape and Land" program
