THE HADZA: THE LAST OF THE FIRST - Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital
7:00 p.m.

Carnegie Institution for Science

Presented in association with The Nature Conservancy

THE HADZA: THE LAST OF THE FIRST (USA, 2014, 71 min.)  World Premiere  This film explores human origins in the very place of our origins, Africa's Rift Valley, where the Hadza, one of the world's last remaining hunter-gatherer groups, have lived sustainably for over 50,000 years. The Hadza's foraging lifestyle is much like that of our earliest ancestors, and many consider the group to be the oldest population in East Africa. Their way of life is currently under attack and, without conservation, a vital tie to our evolutionary roots may be lost forever.  In addition to the remarkable Hadza people, the film is narrated by Oscar-nominated and Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress Alfre Woodard and features Jane Goodall, Wangari Maathai and Richard Wrangham, along with a host of anthropologists, geneticists and other experts.  Directed by Bill Benenson.

Discussion with filmmaker Bill Benenson, Gina Cosentino, Director, Indigenous & Communal Conservation, The Nature Conservancy, and Dr. Alyssa Crittenden, Biocultural Anthropologist, Lincy Assistant Professor, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, follows screening.

Tickets, $10.
