Please join us, at the Bronx River Arts Center gallery this Sunday at 5:00 pm for a screening of the documentary film OWNING THE WEATHER [http://owningtheweather.com/] in conjunction with the exhibition “Shifting Communities: SP Weather Station; Laura Napier; Christy Speakman, on view October 21 – November 19, 2011.
“We’ve always wanted to control the weather. Now we may have to. OWNING THE WEATHER goes deep inside the story of weather modification, including geoengineering schemes to fight global warming.”
From Director Robert Greene; World Premiere on April 3rd at the 2009 Full Frame Film Festival
From Full Frame: “From Machiasport, Maine, to Palo Alto, California, people are talking about the weather. But can they do anything about it? This poetic, ironic, and beautifully shot film answers that question by juxtaposing interviews with weather scientists and lay obsessives—including climate scientists, television meteorologists, air-conditioning technicians, and Weather Channel junkies—with evocative images that subtly comment on the way humans interact with their environments.”
