The Human Element – a documentary movie
November 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Human Element features subjects who are often overlooked victims of climate change. Balog visits
Tangier Island, a fishing community facing the imminent reality of sea level rise threatening their future.
We meet Yadira Sanchez and her three children in Denver, Colorado, all of whom suffer from asthma,
and attend a special school for children struggling with air. Balog embeds with a Cal Fire strike team on
the frontlines of the most expensive wildfire in California history. And he ventures deep into Kentucky
coal country, meeting unemployed miners finding hope from a new source. Balog argues that humans
are part of the whole system of nature and not apart from it. Knowing this, he finds great hope that the
fifth element, the human element, can bring the whole system back into balance.
