When: Thu., Aug. 25, 5:30-9:30 p.m. 2011
We will ask you nicely not to get too wild at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival. You are allowed to be excited about the environmental short films that you will see, each one selected by a local organization. Like The Majestic Plastic Bag, a mockumentary about the travels of the title character narrated by Jeremy Irons; it’s paired with the Charleston Green Fair. And there’s Willem and the Whales, an anti-whaling story told through the eyes of a five-year-old boy, which was picked by Earth Force. The lineup also includes Witness (Southeaster Wildlife Expo), Wildwater (Coastal Conservation League), Brower Youth Awards: Misra Walker, Better Bones and Gardens (U.S. Green Business Council), Meet Your Farmer (Lowcountry Local First), and Change for the Oceans (S.C. Aquarium). But please. Remain in your seat, at least until the after-party, when Introducing Fish Taco will perform and the Hippodrome will serve food from its new restaurant.
