The documentary looks at a big-picture exploration of the environmental movement.
“A Fierce Green Fire” focuses on the largest movement of the 20th century, the environmental movement.

The film was directed and written by Mark Kitchell and is narrated by Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Van Jones and Isabel Allende.
This screening is open to the public and is an effort to educate and bring awareness to the environmental movements happening both globally and locally. In addition to the screening, the event will feature a panel of experts from various organizations in San Diego County and an environmental information fair. The fair, as well as food sold by East African Cuisine and Grauer students, will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The film will begin at 6:30 p.m. in The Grauer School’s Great Hall.

The Grauer School’s “Green Grauer” movement includes growing organic, edible plants in the school’s greenhouse that are used in the School’s “Harvest Kitchen” cooking class; monthly meetings of parents and students to discuss gardening, composting, and other green initiatives on campus; and an Environmental Science class that is open to all high school students.
