About the Film:
The Okavango River Basin provides a vital source of water to about 1 million people, the world’s largest population of African elephants and significant populations of other animals. This film chronicles a team of explorers on their 1,500 miles expedition across three countries to save the river system that feeds the Okavango Delta, one of our planet’s last wetland wildernesses.
The 2019 One Earth Film Fest is from March 1st-March 10th and features a variety of environmental film showings throughout the Chicago area. The theme this year is “All In”. The Festival invites you, your family and friends to go All In for the planet. See the full line-up of powerful, solution-oriented films.
