Scavenger Hunt film screening @ Salt Lake City Public Library - Downtown

Join HawkWatch International, Tracy Aviary and Salt Lake City Public Library for a free public screening of the new documentary film Scavenger Hunt: An Unlikely Union. There will be a Q&A session with a panel of experts following the screening.

The California Condor neared extinction in the 1980s until biologists nurtured the population and saw their numbers grow upward to over 400. However, these noble birds face a grave threat which prevents them from flourishing further: lead poisoning. Scavenger Hunt chronicles the dilemma between bird and man, as the birds are being poisoned by ingesting the flesh of deer carcasses containing lead ammunition fragments. Filmmaker Matthew Podolsky finds the one person who understands all sides of the issue: Chris Parish. Parish, a lifelong hunter, is also the Field Program Supervisor for The Peregrine Fund’s Vermillion Cliffs California Condor Restoration Project— charged with directing the program’s field conservation efforts. Parish is the link to reconciling card-holding NRA members with EPA activists, through his efforts to convert hunters voluntarily to non-lead ammunition. In fact, Parish has been an integral part of the dialogue among hunters and biologists in Northern Arizona. The result: 90% of all hunters in the region have agreed to use lead-free ammunition voluntarily.

The goal of the filmmakers in creating Scavenger Hunt was to build awareness of this issue on a grassroots level. The intent is not to suggest that a voluntary effort is the best or only solution to the problem, but the film does give credit to those localized hunters that have already put forth voluntary effort to protect one of the world’s most endangered bird species. The hope is that hunters will recognize the importance of this threat to the California Condor and other scavenger species, including Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles, Ravens, Turkey Vultures, Wolves and Grizzly Bears, and take the initiative that is needed to end the use of lead-based ammo. In many instances, legislative action will be a necessary component in addressing this conservation issue. Nonethless, the role of this film is to educate, not to legislate.

War Child free documentary screening @ Broadway Centre Cinemas
Sep 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:45 pm
War Child free documentary screening @ Broadway Centre Cinemas

The Tanner Humanities Center and Salt Lake Film Society present a screening of the documentary War Child, which co-stars the Tanner Center’s 2013 World Leaders lecturer John Prendergast. War Child is rated PG-13 and tells the story of hip hop artist Emmanuel Jal, a former child soldier in Sudan’s brutal civil war who now works to bring peace to his country and build schools throughout Africa. This screening is free and open to the public, with no tickets required to attend.

In the early 1980s at the age of seven, Jal was swept into Sudan’s civil war, becoming one of 10,000 child soldiers conscripted on both sides of the two decade long conflict. After being forced to do many unimaginably horrible things, he escaped the soldier’s camp and trekked for four months through Africa. He was eventually found and adopted by the now legendary British aid worker Emma McCune who had married Sudanese guerrilla commander Riek Machar and convinced him to not employ child soldiers. Shortly after she adopted Jal, McCune died in a suspicious car crash, leaving Emmanuel “orphaned” once again. Jal rose from ruthless child soldier to refugee to rap star. He found his own redemption and life mission through a message of peace that represents one of the 21st centuries’ most inspiring and hopeful journeys, and a metaphor for the broader African predicament.

Human rights activist John Prendergast will give the Tanner Humanities Center’s annual World Leaders Lecture, titled “A Changing Africa,” on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 11 AM in Libby Gardner hall, 1375 E. Presidents Circle. This lecture is free and open to the public.
