 'Green Fire'

A film about the life and legacy of the legendary conservationist and ecologist Aldo Leopold

The University of Redlands John Stauffer Center for Science and Mathematics announces the Inland Empire premiere of “Green Fire,” the first full-length documentary about legendary environmentalist Aldo Leopold. The movie will be screened on Nov. 15 at the Casa Loma Room.

Filmmakers Steve and Ann Dunsky will answer questions following the screening and will discuss how Aldo Leopold's land ethic can strengthen local conservation efforts.

'Habibi' 

The film screening will include a Q&A session with the writer, director and producer of “Habibi”, Susan Youssef

A screening of the film “Habibi”, written and directed by Susan Youssef, is open to the public on Nov. 14 at the Orton Center at the University of Redlands campus.

The film depicts the lives of two students in the West Bank of Israel who are forced to return home to Gaza, where their love must defy tradition. Set in Gaza in 2001, the film is a modern adaptation of the Arabic love story, “Majnun Layla.” “Habibi” is a film that challenges prejudices and works to advocate for universal human rights as it challenges stereotypes of the oppressed Arab woman both on and off screen.

Both events are free and open to the public. See news releases for more information.
