PBS’s Independent Lens Screening & Discussion—Eating Up Easter – CANCELED

April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina, the Durham County Library & the Durham Library Foundation for a special preview/discussion—Eating Up Easter!

About the film: In this upcoming episode from the acclaimed PBS documentary series Independent Lens, Eating Up Easter introduces audiences to Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island—it is more than just a picture postcard of iconic stone statues, it is a microcosm of a planet in flux. Native Rapanui grapple with a booming tourism trade that rakes in money, but brings about a changing climate that threatens the fragile ecology on the island. Rapanui filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu gives voice to his fellow islanders, who struggle to balance their strong cultural heritage with modern-day challenges. Threatened by climate change and globalization, remote Easter Island provides a wake-up call for the rest of the world.
Eating up Easter premieres on Independent Lens, Monday, May 25, at 10 PM, on UNC-TV.
