Florida's Conservation Connections (PLV)
Pace students premiere their documentary film, which explores the way Florida balances the needs of its citizens and economy with those of its subtropical ecosystem and wildlife, at the Jacob Burns Film Center on May 10.
After a spring break spent filming in sunny Florida, the Pace documentary film class has been hard at work on their eighth environmental film, Ridge to Ranch to River to Reef: Florida’s Conservation Connections. Every year, Pace students embark on a journey that combines filmmaking and environmental issues over spring break as part of Pace's Producing the Documentary class, MCA254 or 665, who brought us the award-winning documentary from their trip to Cuba last year. This time around, the crew is exploring the negative impact that the fast-growing population in Florida is having on the subtropical ecosystem.
Every day, 1,000 new people move to Florida, and each year 175,000 acres of Florida’s agriculture and native landscape is converted to new infrastructure. The class spent a week in Florida’s Archbold Biological Station learning about conservation from modern biology’s leading minds.
Join the student filmmakers and professors at the premiere:
Wednesday, May 10, at 7:30 p.m.
Jacob Burns Film Center
364 Manville Road
Pleasantville, NY 10570
From the scrubby forests and ranch lands in the interior of Florida, far from the tourist eyes, to the beaches and bays south of the Gulf Coast, we explore the way the Sunshine State balances the needs of its citizens and economy with those of its subtropical ecosystem and wildlife. Through research, conservation, and education, can Florida bear its population increase of 1,000 people per day?
Tickets are free for Pace students, faculty, and staff using the code PACEFILM. Reserve your tickets today.
There will also be a free pre-screening reception celebrating the last 14 years of student documentaries from this course, and welcoming the next group of documentarians.
This film was shot and cut by the following Pace students: Shakira Evans, Nicholas Farris, Allison Fennik, Camilla Klævold, Zhenming Liu, Megan Meyer, Felicia Robcke, Rachel Weiss, and Kelly Whritenour.
