Sept. 8 - Anthropocene: The Human Epoch at KSU Leadership Studies
Filmmakers travel to six continents and 20 countries to document the impact humans have made on the planet.
"A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch was four years in the making."
"From concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60% of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, to metal festivals in the closed city of Norilsk, to the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia and surreal lithium evaporation ponds in the Atacama desert, the filmmakers have traversed the globe using high end production values and state of the art camera techniques to document evidence and experience of human planetary domination."

Sept. 15 - Salam Neighbor at KSU Leadership Studies
"Salam Neighbor is an award-winning feature documentary and campaign to connect the world to refugees. Our goal is to tell the stories of our refugee neighbors with the dignity they deserve and the depth the world needs. We hope you’ll join this effort by watching the film, sharing these stories and getting involved."
"This is a critical moment, with more refugees today than anytime in the last century. More than 4.8 million people have fled Syria alone to escape the atrocities of war. Right now, we are at risk of losing a generation of youth, further destabilizing the region, and perpetuating a cycle of violence and poverty."
“Together let’s seek understanding instead of accepting stereotypes and take action instead of sitting idly by. What’s your first step?”
Sept. 22 - RiverBlue at Sunset Zoo at 8pm
"Can fashion save the planet? Through awareness, we evolve."
"Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, RiverBlue spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future."
"Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. RiverBlue brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference."
"Help propel positive change and protect the world’s rivers."
Sept. 29 - UPC Presents: Three Identical Strangers at KSU Union Wildcat Chambers at 7pm
This movie is cosponsored with KSU Union UPC program.
"Three Identical Strangers is a 2018 documentary film directed by Tim Wardle and starring Edward Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran. It examines a set of American triplets, born in 1961 and adopted as six-month-old infants by separate families, unaware that each child had brothers. The separations were done as part of an undisclosed scientific "nature versus nurture" twin study, to track the development of genetically identical siblings raised in differing circumstances. Combining archival footage, re-enacted scenes, and present-day interviews, the documentary reveals how the brothers discovered one another at age 19 and thereafter sought to understand the circumstances of their separation."
