    ‘Mission Blue’

    The Sustainability Documentary and Dinner Film Series presents a screening of “Mission Blue,” a film that traces oceanographer Sylvia Earle’s remarkable personal journey, from her earliest memories exploring the ocean as a young girl to her days leading a daring undersea mission in the Virgin Islands and beyond. Ambitious in its visual language, goals and passion for change, “Mission Blue” is a wake-up call — for everyone who has ever cared about or experienced the Ocean — as well as for those far inland who are dependent on rainwater, clean air and weather cycles regulated by the ocean. As Earle says: “No blue; no green. No ocean; no us.”

    Sponsored by the Denison Sustainability Fellows and the Office of Sustainability, the film series is open to members of the community who are interested in environmental and social issues. Participants are invited to dine in the President’s Room in Huffman Hall beginning at 5 p.m. The film screening will start at 5:30 p.m. The first 30 people to arrive receive a free dinner.
