Wednesday, March 20, 7-10 p.m. Athena Cinema, 20 S. Court St. Athens OH 45701

The palm oil industry has papered over vast swathes of the planet, much of it valuable and ecologically diverse. Forty million tonnes are produced annually, and it can be found in 50 percent of all packaged foods. Travelling from Cameroon, to Guatemala, to Colombia the film investigates what has catalyzed this new industry and the social and environmental impact of its exponential growth. Palm oil has dominated the environmental press in recent years, amid claims of deforestation and the detrimental effects of monoculture. Michael Dorgan set out to investigate these claims. Following each screening, we invite audience members to join us for a panel discussion hosted by faculty members, students and community members. Please join us for a conversation following these beautiful, thought-provoking and timely films. Free admission. Sponsor is Athens Impact Socially Responsible Investments.
