Nerve (Film Screening & Discussion)

NerveA Symposium Against Indifference: Environmental Sustainability Program

With original score by Ben Sollee, NERVE tells the 25-year David vs. Goliath story of how a humble Vietnam vet and carpenter, Craig Williams (2006 winner of the Goldman Prize – the “green Nobel” – for his work), galvanized his town to break down political barriers, spark a worldwide movement, and take on the Pentagon to stop dangerous chemical weapons incineration for the sake of the environment and human health around the world.  This inspiring story with small-town roots but profound global impact has the potential to empower ordinary people to take on the most overwhelming environmental challenges successfully, with fresh eyes and renewed vigor.  The film will be followed by a brief discussion.
