Apr 24: Ocean acidification film, kids welcome

Pittsburgh premier of 'A Sea Change.'

This film focuses on the issue of ocean acidification through the perspective of a grandfather trying to communicate the problem to his grandson (further details). The pre-film reception will highlight water quality issues and alternative energy options in Pittsburgh; local organizations will showcase their water-related efforts.

With the themes of A Sea Change in mind, all ages are invited. There will be light refreshments, decorations from elementary school students, and activities directed towards children's participation. The pre-film reception will begin at 7:15pm and the film will be shown from 7:35-9pm, with a dessert reception and 'strolling discussion' to resume afterward.

7:15 p.m. in McConomy Auditorium in CMU's University Center. International Film Festival "Faces of Globalization" $7, $4 for students; tickets at http://www.cmu.edu/faces/ .
