Last fall, the Citizen Jane Film Festival held in Columbai, Missouri featured The Work of 1000, a film produced and directed by MU graduate Susan Edwards. If you missed that showing, on Tuesday, January 17, you will have another opportunity to watch this important film.
In the 1960′s, Marion Stoddart took on big and small businesses, a century of bad practices, and the government to clean up what was one of the most polluted rivers in America, the Nashua in New Hampshire. Her efforts ultimately changed local, state and national environmental policies. Her story is inspirational on many levels and the opportunity to talk to her directly should not be missed.
A group of eight local not-for-profit organizations worked together to coordinate this special screening which will include the film and an opportunity to talk to both Susan Edwards and Marion Stoddart. Additionally, representatives of the local organizations, mostly enviornmentally focused, will be on hand to answer questions about the parallels in our area and what we need to be doing today to protect our local waterways.
The movie airs at 7:00PM in the Wrench Auditorium of Memorial Union South. The showing is free with a suggested donation.
