College screens 'River Blue' as part of Sustainability Film Series

WYOMISSING, Pa. — As part of the Penn State Berks Sustainability Film Series, the college will host a screening of the film “River Blue,” at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 8, in the Multipurpose Room in the Perkins Student Center. This event is free and open to the public.

This groundbreaking documentary, narrated by actor Jason Priestley, examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. According to the website, “River Blue brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.”

Future film screenings will include "Half-Mile, Upwind, On Foot" on April 29.

The Sustainability Film Series is sponsored by the Penn State Berks Sustainability Team. For more information visit the Sustainabiity at Penn State Berks or contact Mahsa Kazempour, associate professor of science education at Penn State Berks, at 610-396-6312 or via email at MUK30@psu.edu.
