In his new film, The Human Element, Balog follows the four classical elements—air, earth, fire, and water—to frame his journey, exploring wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal mining, and the changes in the air we breathe. With compassion and heart, The Human Element tells an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature. Following the film screening will be a special post-film discussion with James Balog.
