Arts and Wellness Panel with NeuroArts Blueprint 4/19
Join us for a live screening of Reflection: a walk with water, a film by Emmett Brennan. Proceeds to support global reforestation projects. Wharton Club members and guests are invited.
Reflection: a walk with water is a hopeful and instructional movie about water and its cycles. Through a series of intimate vignettes featuring community leaders and water experts, filmmaker Emmett Brennan records a 200-mile walking journey alongside the Los Angeles aqueduct. The result is an award-winning film that highlights transformational stories from Los Angeles and other parts of California, which might inform water management decisions everywhere.
"Filmmaker Emmett Brennan hopes to inspire...instead of focusing on the damage, he captures the efforts of people working to restore and promote healthy water systems."
"Startlingly provocative...Beautifully shot and lyrical...Thought-provoking."
Plants in general, and trees in specific, play an important role in water's life-giving cycles. Here at ForestPlanet, we stress this critical connection quite often, so we're happy to feature this film.

About the Venue

Many thanks to our partnering businesses for their generous support of this event
Ecoprint: Ecoprint has provided environmentally sustainable printing services to the DMV since 1977, and is proud to be a legacy supporter of ForestPlanet.
Neighborhood Sun: Neighborhood Sun connects people with local clean energy projects like Community Solar. Community energy subscribers not only save money while “going green”, they also support our local economy.
ForestPlanet plants trees where they will have the greatest benefit to the soil, local habitat, the environment, and local communities. We hope this event to raise enough funds to plant thousands of trees around the world, which will quickly:
- Stabilize soils
- Help the land retain rainwater
- Provide income and food security to local populations
- Provide habitat for the region's wildlife
