Join the International Environmental Law Project for the screening of two films that explore the personal face of climate change.

'To the Land of the Setting Sun' considers how perspective and framing impact the environmental reality we see. The award-winning short film was produced in Portland for a 48-hour Go Green film competition, and later screened at Cannes Film Festival in 2011.

'There Once Was an Island: Te Henua E Nnoho' chronicles the small island community of Taku as they face the first devastating affects of climate change. Lacking even electricity, the islanders come to understand how rising seas and failing crops are the result of climate change--and consider what they must do to save their community.

The International Environmental Law Project is a non-profit legal clinic housed at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. For the past two years, IELP has provided pro bono legal advice to Pacific small island developing States within the United Nations climate change negotiations.

The staff and student clerks of IELP will offer an update from the December 2011 United Nations climate change negotiations, as well as some reflections on the personal voices of climate change. The evening will conclude with a raffle.
