Short films created by the students of LA1001 Sustainability by Design and ARCH 5110 Architecture as Catalyst - Envisioning the Sustainable Campus, will be featured at the Bell Museum Auditorium on May 12, 2011 at 7pm as part of the Sustainability Film Series 2011. The films provide student perspectives about sustainability, and how we can transform our campus, city, and freeways to make them more sustainable.
Sustainability Film Series 2011 is a collaborative, multi-venue project that represents a partnership between The Film Society of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, the Bell Museum, the Institute on the Environment (IonE), with support from the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and Take-Up Productions.
The evening's curator and moderator will be Barry Lehrman, a Landscape Architect and Research Fellow in the Zero+ Campus Project at the University of Minnesota where he teaches about sustainable infrastructure and urbanism. A former set designer and art director (Spawn, Stigmata, Living Out Loud, The Last Castle, and MTv's 20th Birthday show), Lehrman brings the craft of creating a compelling narrative to teaching the complexity of sustainability and urban systems.
Admission is free to University of Minnesota students with ID; $5 Bell Museum and The Film Society members, non-university students; $8 general public.
