Tales from Planet Earth is a film series hosted by the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. These free viewings, hosted once or twice a year, link compelling narratives to the work of scholars and community organizations who advocate for environmental and social justice. Originally a film festival, Tales from Planet Earth has evolved into a community based, interactive engagement and learning experience.
