A meditation on the delicate balance between humans and nature
Each month the Paul Mickey Learning Series features a different topic and speaker that are free and open to the public. A film screening of The Guardians is featured this month. Shot over three years, this intimate documentary takes viewers on a cinematic journey through the butterfly-dense mountaintops of Michoacán as the community works to build a sustainable path forward. Rarely has the communion of humans and nature been told in such an evocative and surprising way, leaving viewers with a new perspective on the ecological challenges facing us all. Following the screening, the audience will participate in a question and answer session with the film’s producers via Skype. Find more information go to illinoisstatemuseum.org.
