Come Hell or High Water: A Climate Justice Film Night

Join us for a screening of this hourlong film, followed by a discussion. Popcorn will be served!

THIS JUST IN: we will be joined by Alex Ponte-Capellan of the housing justice organization City Life/Vida Urbana! Learn about the intersection of climate crisis, racial justice, and housing and how you can get involved in climate justice campaigns here in the Boston area.

The film will be captioned. Childcare is available by advance request. Please request by 8/21 by emailing Emily Savin: . (We will attempt to accommodate requests made after that date, but it can be hard to find childcare on short notice.)

About the film: COME HELL OR HIGH WATER follows the painful but inspiring journey of Derrick Evans, a Boston teacher who returns to his native coastal Mississippi when the graves of his ancestors are bulldozed to make way for the sprawling city of Gulfport. Watch the trailer here:

“This intimate film tells a gigantic story – about race, about power, about so-called development. But it is also a saga of community, resilience, resistance, and hope. It’s about everything that matters in our society.”
