VERO BEACH — The community-wide, nondenominational Social Justice Film Series continues its fifth year with the spectacular documentary, “Earth” on Sunday, July 10 at 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Vero Beach.
Fueled by dazzling high-definition photography and stunning locations around the world, “Earth” follows a year-long journey of three families of animals – whales, elephants and polar bears. A feature-length compilation from the splendid BBC and Discovery Channel series “Planet Earth,” the 90-minute documentary was released just before Earth Day 2009, highlighting the damage mankind is doing to the earth. It is appropriate for all ages, and children are welcome.
Reviewers called the film “beautiful and worthwhile,” “simply too spectacular to pass up,” “gloomy message notwithstanding, images…are naturally uplifting,” “time-lapse photography and aerial shots provide images that rival or exceed the most breathtaking special effects sequences in big-budget Hollywood pictures.”
Narrated by James Earl Jones, “Earth” is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations are required. The Fair Trade Corner will be open one-half hour before and after the film.
The UUFVB is handicapped-accessible and is located on the southeast corner of 27th Avenue and 16th Street.
