Following the four classical elements— air, earth, fire and water— to frame his journey, Balog explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal mining, and the changes in the air we breathe. The Human Element tells an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature. Please stay for a Q&A session with producer Olivia Ahnemann in attendance after the screening.

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.
