EarthxFilm: Film Screening 'Into the Okavango' - Dallas

Sep 24 2018 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema - Lake Highlands
6770 Abrams Road
Dallas , TX

The Okavango is one of the last untouched refuges for wildlife on the planet, showing visitors “what the world used to be without us,” says conservation biologist Steve Boyes. It cannot survive the loss of any freshwater arteries. The film chronicles Boyes’ trip down the headwaters of Angola’s keystone Cuito River into the delta. Perhaps his team’s biggest discovery is that the peat bogs into which the Cuito seems to disappear hold enough water to supply the Delta with the 2.5 trillion gallons it needs annually. But even this secret reservoir can’t guarantee protection of the endangered Delta from human impacts.

Neil Gelinas, National Geographic Society director, senior producer, cameraman, and editor will be in attendance for a question and answer session after the film.

Free.
