Saving Snow is a 53-minute documentary about the economic impacts of warming winters.
There will be a community social time with light snacks at 6:30 pm followed by film viewing and discussion 7-8:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by The Farley Center for Peace, Justice and Sustainability and Southwest Wisconsin Area Progressives (SWWAP).
“With all of my films, the goal is to make climate change concrete,” says filmmaker Diogo Freire of Adaptation Now. “I try to find specific examples of communities that are being affected—and also show how they’re responding.” A disappearing snow season is more than just a frustration for winter sports enthusiasts. It means lost income for the many towns and small businesses that depend on winter tourism and recreation to stay afloat.
