In Focus film series at COC

In Focus, presented in partnership with Greensboro Wonder Arts, is a new film series focusing on climate change. This winter we will screen three documentaries that address what is happening to Earth’s ice, snow and water as more of the polar ice caps melt and the weather patterns become more extreme.
