One Earth Film Festival
The One Earth Film Festival includes films addressing climate change, health & the environment, sustainable building, and environmental advocacy.
Northwestern will host a screening of two films on International Women's Day 2021, Monday, March 8th at 6:30 PM CST. Join us for a free screening of these films featuring two remarkable women, exploring their relationship with the environment as they stand up for themselves, inclusivity, and justice.
About the film: Not seeing herself reflected in the community she loves, mountain biker, skier and artist Brooklyn Bell created her own role model: a hand-drawn hero called Ruby J. With Ruby J as a guide, Brooklyn spent the next few years trying to “live like her, breathe like her, be unapologetically black like her,” and in the process shaped her own identity, one that intertwines her love for dirt, snow and art—and a voice with which to advocate for diversity and inclusion.
Becoming Rudy, an 18-minute short film, will be followed by Maxima.
