BLOOMSBURG— Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania presents the Green Campus film series in October and November with three award-winning movies. The first film, “Eating Animals” will be shown on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. in Hartline Science Center, Kuster Auditorium.

The series events are free and open to the public.

“Eating Animals” is based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer. The film examines the economic, public health and environmental impacts of agribusiness as compared to small, sustainable farming practices.

“Sacred Cod” a feature-length documentary that captures the collapse of the historic cod population in New England, delving into the role of overfishing, the impact of climate change, the effect of government policies on fishermen and the fish.

“Chasing Coral” from the producers of “Chasing Ice,” examines what has happened to coral reefs as seawater temperatures have risen along with ocean levels. New techniques in underwater photography were developed by filmmakers to carefully document coral bleaching in the same way that the decimation of glacial ice was revealed in “Chasing Ice.”

The environmental documentary series is sponsored by Bloomsburg University’s Green Campus Initiative.
