Abstract

Join us for the screening of The Ants and the Grasshopper, a documentary that tells the story of a Malawian activist trying to save her home from extreme weather. Called "charming, infuriating" and "big-hearted" by The New Yorker, the film weaves together the most urgent themes of our times: climate change, gender and racial inequality, the gaps between the rich and the poor, and the ideas that groups around the world have generated in order to save the planet. At the end of the film, director and LBJ School research professor Raj Patel will answer questions from the audience. This event is a collaboration between the LBJ School, Hot Science - Cool Talks, and Texas Global.
