Georgia Southern’s Center for Sustainability features “Terra Blight” for Environmental Community Cinema

The Georgia Southern Center for Sustainability (CfS) will host an Environmental Community Cinema night on Wednesday, Nov. 4, featuring the documentary, “Terra Blight.” The screening will take place at 7 p.m. in 1119 Natural Sciences Building, 69 Georgia Avenue.

Directed by noted cinematographer Isaac Brown, “Terra Blight” analyzes the American culture’s sense of need for the latest technology and how our consumption of these technologies is leading to the production of hazardous waste. Following the life cycle of computers from production to disposal, Brown showcases the vastly differing communities who hold computers at the center of their social settings. “Terra Blight” brings to light the relatively unknown realities of one of the world’s most omnipresent forms of toxic waste and will leave audiences with a new view and understanding of computers.

“This engaging film presents and eye-opening look at what happens after we are done with our electronics,” said Lissa Leege, Ph.D., director of the CfS. “Students of all majors will benefit from a better understanding of the full life cycle of these everyday devices.”

This screening was made possible by Student Sustainability fees.
