The Condor and The Eagle - Houston Premiere
The Citizens’ Environmental Coalition (CEC) and the Houston Green Film Series will host a virtual screening of the Houston Premiere of the documentary, The Condor and The Eagle, on September 30 at 6:00 p.m. CST
The award-winning film, The Condor and The Eagle, explores the ongoing collective climate awakening and the need for urgent change. The film features Indigenous People who are at the forefront of expanding pipeline projects that are at risk of changing their environments forever. They’re coming together to build alliances and discovering the power of their shared voices to develop a resistance strategy that stretches from Houston to South America and beyond. Much of the film is set in Houston, with a spotlight on activists Bryan Parras and Yudith Nieto who are seen working as community organizers in Manchester, a neighborhood along the Houston Ship Channel. Bryan is the Healthy Communities Organizer with Sierra Club and Co-Founder of t.e.j.a.s.
A panel discussion will follow the screening. Participants have a chance to discuss the film with local experts. Activists on the panel include: Dr. Robert Bullard (the Father of environmental justice and Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at T.S.U.), Bryan Parras (film protagonist) and Marco Garcia (Sunrise Movement Houston and U.H. student activist). Iris Gonzalez (Director of the Coalition for Environment, Equity and Resilience) will serve as moderator.
