Beacon Institute to Screen Short Films on Aug. 21

Each focuses on human connection to water

The Beacon Institute hosts its annual film night, Thursday, Aug. 21, at 7 p.m., featuring short movies for young and old designed to uplift and inspire the human connection to water. The event, Once Upon a Tide and Other Stories, will take place at the institute’s Center for Environmental Innovation and Education (CEIE) at Denning’s Point in Beacon.

Inspired by the film Once Upon a Tide, produced in 2009 by Kathleen Frith, now president of Glynwood, the presentation provides “a visual tour of some of the world’s pristine places and hidden wonders, an opportunity to transcend the often-pessimistic landscape of today’s environmental challenges,” according to the institute.
