Earth Day Movie Screening: Elemental (free!)

In recognition of Earth Day, Echoes is proud to host an official screening of the documentary Elemental on Monday, April 21st, 7pm, at Mt Baker Theater (in the Encore Room).

From the website: "Elemental tells the story of three individuals united by their deep connection with nature and driven to confront some of the most pressing ecological challenges of our time....Separated by continents yet sharing an unwavering commitment to protecting nature, the characters in this story are complex, flawed, postmodern heroes for whom stemming the tide of environmental destruction fades in and out of view – part mirage, part miracle."

From India, to Australia, to Canada, Elemental covers three different issues through the lives of three very different people, protecting three elements: earth, air, and water. This movie is artistically appealing, moving, and honest. This movie has only been shown in Bellingham for a brief time at the Pickford last summer; don't miss the rare chance to see this important movie!

No ticket required, seating is limited to 120. 


“Three environmental activists around the globe are profiled in ELEMENTAL and their efforts are duly inspiring and the related issues imposing… an interesting view of eco warriors at work… Editing smoothly weaves between the three strands, with assembly polished in other departments as well, notably an expansive string-based original score.”

VARIETY

“Fascinating…Insightful…Stunningly shot”

VILLAGE VOICE

“This sensitively scored film complicates the typical missionary’s-progress arc by acknowledging its would-be heroes’ weaknesses and the day-to-day obstacles to doing good.”

NEW YORK TIMES

“Three fascinating profiles…ELEMENTAL speaks to the importance of protecting the natural elements: water, air, earth. It’s a beautifully filmed piece, even when it’s showing us white clouds of pollutants billowing out of a smokestack.”

WASHINGTON POST

“Elegant… A triptych of profiles in courage”

SF WEEKLY

“Stands out…a refreshing change in a genre that often succumbs to out-and-out boosterism.”

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

“Elegantly shot and edited…Even those suffering from environmental-doc fatigue will find much to praise about ELEMENTAL”

SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

“Elegantly told…beautifully photographed…ELEMENTAL rises above the usual rhetoric heavy, talking-heads doc”

TWITCH

“ELEMENTAL is a rare, fresh look at environmental issues and sustainability that does not shy away from the personal impact the decisions to dedicate one’s life to a cause entails…ELEMENTAL is fascinating… with alarming intimacy… director Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee ties these threads together masterfully.”

THE FILM STAGE

“Beautifully shot, heartbreaking, informative, and compelling”

OFF TO THE FILMS

“Elemental succeeds… gorgeous visuals and a passionate cry for global change from real-life activists”

LOST IN REVIEWS

“Inspirational…The pro-active protagonists lift it from the muck of feel-bad documentaries.”

St. Louis Post Dispatch

“An affecting mix of character study and ecological survey”

SLANT MAGAZINE

“The film seamlessly segues among storylines, following…three individuals who are on very different quests, and yet…on parallel trajectories.”
