SEED Film Screenings Today in DUMBO with TreeHuggerTV Premiere: Ben Harper & Graham Hill in Conversation

How did New Yorkers become so disconnected from the bodies of water that surround them and how can they reclaim the relationship? Such is the question taken up by City of Water, a 30-minute documentary film about the significance, history, and future of the New York City metropolitan area waterfront. The film screens today as part of DUMBO's neighborhood sustainability initiative, SEED (Smart Environmental Efforts in DUMBO). Also on the docket are Renewal, a 90-minute documentary that attempts to capture the breadth and vitality of America's religious-environmental movement. The film follows people of faith in rural communities, suburbs and cities, who are driven by their spiritual and religious convictions to re-examine what it means to be human and how we live on this planet. Last but not least, a premiere screening of four short digital films featuring musician Ben Harper in conversation with TreeHugger founder Graham Hill.Our latest installments with Ben and Graham were shot in DUMBO and feature the re-imagining and transformation of the Pearl Street Triangle from parking space to green space.
