Purple Mountains Movie Screening with Q&A
Join us on Monday, October 26th to watch the new climate documentary, Purple Mountains. After the screening, we will have a Q & A session with the director, Josh "Bones" Murphy, who also direct Artifishal.
This documentary touches on the intersection of climate change and outdoor enthusiasts and features professional snowboarder turned climate activist, Jeremy Jones.
Jeremy has an intimate relationship with the outdoors. It’s his escape, his identity, and his legacy. But over the course of his 45 years in the mountains, he’s seen things change: more extreme weather, fewer snow days, and economic strain on mountain towns.
Motivated by an urge to protect the places he loves, Jeremy sets out on a physical and philosophical journey to find common ground with fellow outdoor people across diverse political backgrounds. He learns their hopes and fears while walking a mile in their shoes on the mountain and in the snow.
With intimacy and emotion set against breathtaking backdrops, Purple Mountains navigates America’s divide with a refreshing perspective: even though we may disagree about climate policy, our shared values can unite us.
