Bernheim is honored that Virginia Chance School in Louisville created a documentary film about the importance of protecting Bernheim’s land from the installation of a natural gas pipeline. Director of Environmental Program, Rachel Beck and Chance School 5th grade students studying environmental justice began to investigate the Bullitt County Pipeline and set out to gain various perspectives around the project. As a part of this journey, they met with Bernheim’s Natural Areas team to learn how a pipeline would impact the forest, from rare species whose habitats would be threatened to the effects on clean water. This short documentary share their discoveries from Bernheim and others.
The screening will take place at the Speed Cinema on Sunday, July 30 at 3 p.m. as part of Shorts Block B.
The Flyover Film Festival, put on by Louisville Film Society (LFS), brings together some of the most creative and daring artists from “flyover states” such as Kentucky and Indiana for an annual celebration of filmmaking. A nonprofit organization, LFS is committed to strengthening the bond of our creative community and enriching the community by exhibiting independent, classic, experimental, and international cinema. The 13th annual festival will take place at the Speed Cinema. At this film festival, LFS and the Speed curate a program of films with local ties. Flyover continues to focus on premieres of films with connections to our state that were either shot in Kentucky using local crews and resources or have a director, star or producer from Kentucky.
