I.G. Greer Auditorium, ASU, Free
At this Sustainability Film Series event sponsored by the ASU Office of Sustainability, Digital Watauga will present the long-awaited screening of the George Flowers environmental film shot circa 1971. The film features footage of environmental crisis in Watauga County through the eyes of Flowers, a noted news
photographer in Boone between 1958 and 1998. The original soundtrack is lost, but J. D. Dooley has partnered with Digital Watauga to supply a soundtrack to accompany the original film. Panel discussion follows the screening of this and one
other film.
