World premiere of The Extinction Variations followed by Q&A

Join us for the world premiere of The Extinction Variations on January 23. Filmed on the concert stage and in the Pacific Northwest’s landscapes of coastal tidepools, volcanic fields, and clear-cut mountainsides, The Extinction Variations is a moving call to action on climate disruption and mass extinction. In a unique creative collaboration, classical pianist Rachelle McCabe’s performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Variations on a Theme of Corelli” weaves through essayist Kathleen Dean Moore’s words, carrying them from despair to bewilderment to hope and moral resolve.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with Kathleen Dean Moore, Rachelle McCabe, and filmmaker Nara Garber.
