DC Environmental Film Festival, London 2012 Paralympics & Summers Off

In March 2012, Washington, DC celebrated its 20th anniversary of the Environmental Film Festival.  This film festival has become one of the world’s largest and most influential showcases of environmental films. The Festival presents a diverse selection of high quality environmental films, including many national and world premieres.  Executive Director Peter O’Brien shares with World Footprints audiences what this year’s festival holds.

Becoming a world-class athlete takes enormous determination, courage and faith. Anjali Forber-Pratt has all of those characteristics and more.  She is a record-breaking paralympic athlete who has competed on the international stage for several years.  She is heading to London for the 2012 games but is taking time out of her training schedule to join us.

Some teachers teach without ever leaving the classroom.  Larry “Jungle” Shortell is not one of them.  During the school year, Larry teaches special education in Connecticut.  But during his Summers Off, which incidentally is the name of his new book, Larry travels the world seeking adventure.
