A screening of the documentary film "A Fierce Green Fire" followed by a discussion of the history of the environmental movement is planned Thursday evening, July 25 at Earthplace, the Nature Discovery Center.

The program begins with a wine reception at 6 p.m., followed by screening of the award-winning film at 7 p.m. The filmmaker, Mark Kitchell, will be present to lead the post-film discussion.

"A Fierce Green Fire" traces grassroots and global environmental activism, spanning 50 years -- from conservation to climate change. Kitchell is best known for his documentary "Berkeley in the Sixties," Earthplace said, which won the Sundance Film Festival's Audience Award in 1990 and was nominated for an Academy Award.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $9 at the door, if still available.
