The Ants and the Grasshopper Virtual Screening | Thursday • October 27, 2022 at 7:30 pm EDT

There is an opportunity to participate in a screening of the award-winning “Ants and the Grasshopper” film. The film features two women from Malawi who come to the U.S. to let American farmers and politicians know that climate change is real.


Anita Chitaya has a gift; she can help bring abundant food from dead soil, she can make men fight for gender equality, and she can end child hunger in her village. Now, to save her home from extreme weather, she faces her greatest challenge: persuading Americans that climate change is real. Traveling from Malawi to California to the White House, she meets climate sceptics and despairing farmers. Her journey takes her across all the divisions shaping the US, from the rural-urban divide, to schisms of race, class and gender, to the thinking that allows Americans to believe we live on a different planet from everyone else. It will take all her skill and experience to persuade us that we’re all in this together.

This documentary, ten years in the making, weaves together the most urgent themes of our times: climate change, gender and racial inequality, the gaps between the rich and the poor, and the ideas that groups around the world have generated in order to save the planet. Watch the film’s TRAILER HERE.
