WIND OF CHANGE (Kenya, 2012, 40 min.) 

United States Premiere Eastern Africa has just experienced the worst drought the region has seen in over 60 years. This documentary gives the drought a human face and brings us closer to the challenges that individuals face from climate change. The film follows a farmer in Kenya with big dreams and a vision for his family’s future. He and his family fight against the effects of both global and local human-induced climate change, experiencing a rainy season that unfortunately has been marked by less rain than usual in recent years. Beautiful images and the farmer’s own video diary provide an intimate look at their struggle. Directed by Julia Dahr.

Introduced by J.D. Talasek, Director, Cultural Programs, National Academy of Sciences (CPNAS). Panel discussion, moderated by Kevin Finneran, Editor, Issues in Science and Technology magazine with Alex Dehgan, Science and Technology Adviser to the Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development and Karen Brooks, Director, CGIAR Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets, International Food Policy Research Institute, follows screening.
