EDWARDSVILLE — The Center for Spirituality and Sustainability at the Geodesic Dome on the campus of SIUE and the Piasa Palisades Group of the Sierra Club will present a special screening of a new film, “From the Pipeline: A Journey Along Flanagan South.”
This event at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 9, will include a presentation by director Caitlin Zera, a filmmaker from St. Louis who is interested in social and environmental documentary work with a focus on public media and art.
At 593 miles long, the pipeline stretches across Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois. It carries tar sands, one of the most ecologically destructive oil products, at nearly 600,000 barrels a day, rivaling the capacity of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. “From the Pipeline” captures stories of the changing landscapes and communities along the entire Missouri route of the Flanagan South Tar Sands pipeline.
The public is invited to join the speaker at 5:30 p.m. at Wang Gang restaurant in Edwardsville. Wang Gang is located at 1035 Century Drive in Edwardsville in the small mall across from Edwardsville High School. The Center for Spirituality and Sustainability is located on the campus of SIUE west of the Morris University Center South Circle Drive off Visitor Parking Lot B.
