A Sense of Wonder, a film depicting scientist and author Rachel Carson in the last year of her life as she battles cancer and the chemical industry, is making a nationwide 100-city tour this March to celebrate National Women’s History Month.
It’s a fitting tribute to a woman many consider the instigator and “patron saint” of the environmental movement. Carson’s bestseller Silent Spring, which she started writing in 1958 at the age of 50, was highly influential in the banning of the chemical DDT and the creation of EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the passage of the Clean Water Act.
Written by and starring film and television actress Kaiulani Lee, A Sense of Wonder offers a historically accurate and powerfully moving portrayal of this amazing woman.
The film, premiering in Los Angeles on March 19th, is free to the public. To reserve a seat email senseofwonderrsvp at gmail dot com. The film will also be shown in 99 other cities across the nation.
