“Arresting Science” Preview Screening & Panel
August 24, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join us for an exciting evening of exploration and discussion at the “Arresting Science” Preview Screening & Panel event.
Holly Becker’s documentary, “Arresting Science” follows Dr. Peter Kalmus, an impassioned climate scientist, who commits his first act of civil disobedience in downtown Los Angeles. Historically, scientists have been neutral and data-driven, but the climate emergency has forced him and some colleagues out of their labs and into the streets. LAPD responds to the protest en masse. Dr. Kalmus emerges even more determined to take on the system and inspire change.
Following the screening, engage in a lively panel featuring climate activist Steven Starr from the film, climate scientist Peter Kalmus (via video), filmmaker Holly Becker and UCSB professor emerita Catherine Gautier. This event is free and space is limited.
Location: CEC Environmental Hub, 1219 State St., Santa Barbara
