Join us for the exclusive premiere Seattle Screening of "John Muir in the New World" - a documentary about one of America's first great environmentalists, produced for PBS.
Thursday, April 14th, at 7:00 PM Special Screening at Seattle Public Library, Microsoft Auditorium Suggested Donation: $3 students | $6 adults
"John Muir in the New World" is a documentary biography that presents the real and complex John Muir to the American viewer for the first time: who he was, what he accomplished, and why he is widely regarded as such an iconic figure in America's long debate on the best use of wilderness.
Produced by Global Village Media [GVM], an award-winning production company with over twenty years of international broadcast experience, the documentary paints a rounded portrait of Muir, the influences on his life, the historical context in which he operated, and the impact he had on the modern environmental movement. PBS will televise this nationally on April 18th in their American Masters Program, in celebration of Earth Week.
