More than 60 films covering a range of environmental issues will screen in Dallas starting Friday. This week, we preview the festival with its artistic director. Earth X Film is part of the larger Earth X Expo event commemorating Earth Day.
Among the films that jumped off the schedule to us:
The Human Element – Photographer and environmentalist James Balog travels to spots already affected by climate change to tell the stories of people struggling with rising sea levels and hotter temperatures. (Friday at 7:30 p.m. and April 20 at 6:45 p.m.)
The Game Changers – You might remember director Louie Psihoyos from his Oscar-winning documentary “The Cove,” which captured brutal dolphin fishing practices in Japan. This time around, he profiles world-class athletes who’ve gone vegan – making a choice that’s both heart-healthy and Earth-friendly. (April 19 at 7:30 p.m.)
Rodents of Unusual Size – The battle against nutria is real. And if you’ve ever wanted to meet one, there will be one on a leash at the film’s Texas Theatre screening. (Sunday at 3 p.m. and April 21 at 3 p.m.)
