Event Description

Wallingford Public Library welcomes the public to a screening of the documentary Origins on Monday, August 17 at 6:00 p.m. This film takes a close look at the natural connection between the Earth’s ecosystem and humans’ place within that ecosystem.

The film argues that the keys to survival for both the human race and the planet can only be understood by looking back on the origins of our species nearly 200,000 years ago and it challenges us to reevaluate our existence in the modern world, and embrace the simplicities that defined the beginnings of our species. "I believe to understand our present and to map our future, we have to go back in time," says Alan McSmith, an ecology instructor and a key interview subject featured in the film.

Please join us to view the film and share your thoughts. Advance registration is appreciated.

For more information please contact the library at 203-265-6754 or online at wallingfordlibrary.org. All programs and events are free and open to the public however seating is limited.
