This Earth Day, April 22, don't miss the unique film screening event, "Hot Times: Imagining a Sustainable Future for the Heartland," featuring a Kansas-based producer's new documentary about the local impact and response to climate change in Kansas and the region. The film is airing on multiple PBS stations.

The film's producer, Dave Kendall, of Prairie Hollow Productions, will present an abbreviated, one-hour version of his documentary, "Hot Times in the Heartland," at 5:30 p.m. in Forum Hall at the K-State Student Union. Following the screening, four experts from Kansas State University who are featured in the film will give a short panel discussion. A reception and exhibit fair with the experts and other partners will open the event at 4:30 p.m. in the Union courtyard. 

The expert panelists are John Blair, university distinguished professor of biology and director of the Konza Prairie Biological Station; Chuck Rice, university distinguished professor of agronomy; Logan Thompson, assistant professor in animal science and industry; and Chip Redmond, director of Kansas Mesonet.

The public is invited to this free event sponsored by Students for Environmental Action, the College of Arts and Sciences and the Kansas Water Institute.
