Movies about Mount Everest and the Yosemite Valley look awesome on the big screen, but it's the critter flicks that most resonate at tonight's Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival
at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Similar to March of the Penguins
, Ride of the Mergansers
chronicles the early life of Great Lakes ducklings; for human interest, Kilowatt Hours
explores a couple's adventures in energy conservation. Other films include an animated short about organic food and a look at a hang-glider who soars with eagles. Before the movies, there are bands, appetizers, and preservation groups to ply the audience with music, food, and guilt, respectively.
