Calendar Nature Night: SKYGLOW: A Magical Timelapse Film and Conversation Exploring Light Pollution with filmmaker Harun Mehmedinović Arts/Culture/Recreation Renowned filmmaker Harun Mehmedinović will present SKYGLOW, a magical “timelapse” video series exploring North America’s remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment. Cinema 21: 616 NW 21st Ave Portland, OR Doors open at 6:30 p.m.Film screening and conversation at 7 p.m.Pre-sale tickets and pricing information. Join the Audubon Society of Portland, in partnership with the Lloyd Eco District, for a visually arresting night of film and conversation with renowned filmmaker Harun Mehmedinović. Harun will present SKYGLOW, a magical 'timelapse' video series exploring North America's remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment. The creeping fog of light pollution is a problem to which we have become largely desensitized, especially in urban settings. And yet, this issue affects us all deeply, personally and biologically. Left undeterred, it has dire consequences for environmental health, human health, and the visibility of our night skies. The effects of light pollution are well studied, and have been shown to adversely affect circadian rhythms in humans, plants, and wildlife alike, as well as famously confusing nighttime migrants by drowning out the celestial cues they use to navigate while on migration. After traveling over 150,000 miles and taking over 3 million pictures in three years, filmmakers Harun Mehmedinović and Gavin Heffernan made this film series that 'explores the history and mythology of celestial observation, the proliferation of electrical outdoor lighting that spurred the rise of the phenomena known as "skyglow,' and the Dark Sky Movement that's fighting to reclaim the night skies.' Harun will be in attendance and will discuss the insidious growth of light pollution in our cities and the miraculous calm of spaces that are hidden from artificial light. It is sure to be a night to remember. 2017-10-17 19:00:00.0 2017-10-17 20:30:00.0 0 0 0
