The Gregg Museum is bringing back its Eco Film Series in celebration of Earth Month with three free screenings of new and exciting nature films. The first, The Human Element directed by Matthew Testa, chronicles the quest of environmental photographer James Balog to show how the four elements — air, earth, water and fire — are being altered by the fifth element of human activity. Pioneering in its videography, the documentary reveals how global warming has drastically contributed to wildfires and hurricanes that disrupt human-nature balance. With rare compassion and heart, The Human Element highlights Americans on the front lines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.
