Rachel Carson Film Screening - Newburyport

Fri Apr 21st 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Parker River Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center Auditorium6 Plum Island Turnpike, Newburyport, MA 01950, USA 

Featuring the voice of Mary-Louise Parker as the influential writer and scientist, Rachel Carson is an intimate portrait of the woman whose groundbreaking books revolutionized our relationship to the natural world. When Silent Spring was published in September 1962 it became an instant bestseller and would go on to spark dramatic changes in the way the government regulated pesticides. Drawn from Carson’s own writings, letters and recent scholarship, the film illuminates both the public and private life of the soft-spoken, shy scientist who launched the modern environmental movement. (2017; run time: 1 hr, 53 mins).

This FREE film will be shown in the refuge visitor center auditorium. No preregistration for this event.
