Half Wild is thrilled to present Future Ecologies: An Evening with Rucha Chitnis and Adam Huggins.

Join us for an evening of community and conversation. Please bring a dish or snacks to share. We will begin with nourishments at 6:30. Please be sure to arrive no later than 7:30, as our live interview begins at 7:45.

On this special evening Adam Huggins will interview photojournalist and documentary filmmaker Rucha Chitnis live for the Future Ecologies podcast. Our interview will follow a screening of Rucha's award-winning documentary short, "In the Land of My Ancestors," which celebrates the living legacy of Ann Marie Sayers, a beloved Ohlone elder. Rucha's film is the 2018 Platinum Winner of the International Independent Film Awards.

In Future Ecologies' first season, Adam Huggins and co-founder Mendel Skulski have displayed a remarkable talent for weaving stories, interviews, music, and soundscapes into a highly engaging podcast on par with East Coast analogs Inside/Out and Here be Monsters. Listen to Season 1 of Future Ecologies podcast.

As Rucha Chitnis articulates, "Women are our invisible life force. They are the world's farmers, seed savers, peace builders, human rights defenders and environmental guardians. As a photojournalist, I am passionate about making the invisible visible--particularly women's counter narratives and grounded alternatives in the face of human rights abuses, food insecurity and ecological and climate crises."
