MPTV Community Cinema: FREE Screening of TAKING ROOT

TAKING ROOT, an Independent Lens production. Wangari Maathai of Kenya suggested rural women plant trees in 1977 to address problems stemming from a degraded environment. Under her leadership, their tree-planting grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, defend human rights and promote democracy.

All screenings are free and open to the public.

With the exception of a "special" preview, all events are held at Discovery World's Innovation Theater, 500 N. Harbor Drive in Milwaukee and start at 6:30 p.m.
