      EVENT DETAILS
      Screening of Netflix Documentary Chasing Coral

      A free, public screening and discussion of the Netflix documentary film Chasing Coral— winner of a 2017 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award—will come to Madison, Wisconsin, on Sunday, November 17, as part of the Sigma Xi STEM Art and Film Festival. The film shows how coral reefs are dying on a massive scale due to climate change and hopes to serve as a wake-up call to audiences that action is needed now to address environmental issues. Chasing Coral also won a Peabody Award in 2017 and an Emmy for Outstanding Nature Documentary in 2018. The 90-minute film will be shown at noon at the Monona Terrace Convention Center’s Lecture Hall and will be followed by a panel discussion about the film that will last until 2:30 p.m. The art and film festival is the last day of Sigma Xi’s Annual Meeting and Student Research Conference, which will focus on how scientists and engineers are designing solutions for the changing global environment. You do not need to register for the Annual Meeting to attend the film screening.
