Join the Bitterroot Public Library for a free screening of The Islands and the Whales. The Bitterroot Public Library offers provocative film themes to their rural community to develop a greater awareness of the world and to ask questions that will create greater discussion and understanding. The Islands and the Whales’ theme will represent people’s role and responsibility for changing environments and what to do about it. Other themes will be human relationships, capital punishment, coming of age and agricultural practices that impact our food.
