The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital is the world’s premier showcase of environmentally themed films. The festival this year runs March 15 – 25. Check out the special screening of Silas. 

Liberian activist, Silas Siakor is a tireless crusader, fighting to crush corruption and environmental destruction in the country he loves. Through the focus on one country, Silas is a global tale that warns of the power of politics and celebrates the power of individuals to fight back. One man’s battle gains momentum and emboldens communities to raise their fists and smartphones, seize control of their lands and protect their environment. It is a new generation of resistance.

Q&A — Anjali Nayar and Silas Siakor – Reception immediately follows screening.
