CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Recycling and Reuse Technology Transfer Center (RRTTC) will show the films "Crude Impact" and "Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives" as part of the Environmental Health and Sustainability film series.

"Crude Impact" will be shown Monday, Feb 13, and "Scarred and Wounded Lives" will be shown Tuesday, Feb. 21. Both films will begin at 7 p.m., in the auditorium at the Center for Energy and Environmental Education, on the UNI campus.

"Crude Impact" will look at the interconnection of human domination of the planet, the use of petroleum and offer solutions to better live sustainably. Catherine Zeman, associate professor at the RRTTC, will be available for answering questions following the film.

"Scarred and Wounded Lives" will look into the effects of war on our environment and how the effects are underestimated and underreported.  

The films are free and open to the public. The Environmental Health and Sustainability film series is co-sponsored by the Healthy Cedar Valley Coalition. For more information, contact Jenny Bruss, program and community outreach coordinator at RRTTC, at 319-273-3689 or jennifer.bruss@uni.edu.
