Green Fire to be shown at Flat Rock Cinema by PAC and CMLC

Published 6:57pm Wednesday, November 6, 2013

The Pacolet Area Conservancy and the Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy will jointly present the film, “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for our Time” to the public Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Flat Rock Cinema.
The Flat Rock Cinema is located at 2700 Greenville Hwy, Flat Rock, N.C. There is no charge for the showing of this film, but donations will be accepted.
The cinema is a unique theater – not like your average movie theater. They offer an array of food and beverages.
Considered by many as the father of wildlife management and of the United States’ wilderness system, Aldo Leopold was a conservationist, forester, philosopher, educator, writer and outdoor enthusiast. The film explores Leopold’s life in the early part of the twentieth century and the many ways his land ethic idea continues to be applied all over the world today.
The Green Fire film portrays how Leopold’s vision of a community that cares about both people and land — his call for a land ethic — ties modern conservation stories together and offers inspiration and insight for the future.
“Aldo Leopold’s legacy lives on today in the work of people and organizations across the nation and around the world,” said Pam Torlina, PAC director of stewardship and land protection. “What is exciting about Green Fire is that it is more than just a documentary about Aldo Leopold; it also explores the influence his ideas have had in shaping the conservation movement as we know it today by highlighting some really inspiring people and organizations doing great work to connect people and the natural world.”
Come support the work of your local land trusts, and enjoy a meal and an inspirational movie. Driving directions and a complete food and beverage menu, including beer and wine, can be found at
