Event Details

Pacific Environment, a non-profit environmental organization, will host a special screening of the upcoming Oscar nominated film “The Warriors of Qiugang.” There will be a reception with Pacific Environment after the film.

The stirring documentary chronicles the five-year battle by the residents of the Chinese village of Qiugang to bring an end to the lethal pollution caused by factories adjacent to their tiny hamlet. Oscar-winning documentarians Ruby Yang and Thomas Lennon follow a local farmer as he takes the lead in navigating a tricky maze of state-mandated environmental laws, local corruption, and evasive company representatives, guided by Ren Jingwen of Green Anhui.

Info: The film run time is 39 minutes. The film was nominated in January for Best Documentary Short and features one of Pacific Environment’s partner organizations, Green Anhui. There is a suggested donation at the door, and seating is limited. . For more information, contact skellman@pacificenvironment.org or call 415-399-8850 x309.
