The Condor and The Eagle

In partnership with the Unitarian Universalist Ministry For Earth and Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church Social Action Committee, the Reel and Meal presents The Condor and The Eagle!

The Condor and The Eagle documents Indigenous environmental leaders who, in the face of a global climate and environmental emergency, work to unite the peoples of North and South America in engaging these challenges and deepen the meaning of “Climate Justice”. In this journey, the film’s four protagonists learn from each other’s long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy.

Event begins at 6:45pm; Film begins at 7:15pm.

Register here via WebinarJam. Once registered, you will receive directions and links to join the pre-show and the post-film discussion on Zoom.

As always the program is free. Donations will be accepted to support front-line groups who are working in relationship and solidarity with environmental justice programming and most-impacted neighborhoods. More information below. DONATE HERE.

We encourage you to enjoy a vegan meal to support our animal rights, social justice and environmental advocacy. Please patronize local eateries when you can!

Discussion will be led by Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin, with the Maryland Campaign for Environmental Human Rights; and Prof. Nicole Fabricant of Towson University, with the South Baltimore Community Land Trust.

The Condor & The Eagle premiered in October 2019 at the Woodstock Film Festival, was selected by 28 world-renowned film festivals and has won 8 awards including Best Environmental Documentary at the 2019 Red Nation Film Festival.

The film will be presented on WebinarJam and the discussion will take place on Zoom. To register, please go to the WebinarJam Registration Page.
