Celebrate Conservation benefit Movie Night….the photos!
This past Saturday’s Celebrate Conservation benefit event for the Fundacion Punta de Mita and the Redford Center was a fantastic event, bringing together Punta Mita residents and guests to meet and hear from James Redford, Chairman of the Redford Center and an award-winning film maker and conservationist.
The special edition Movie Night at the Punta Mita Golf Club House welcomed James Redford, together with Dr. Osvel Hinojosa-Huerta, Director of the Water and Wetlands Program, Pronatura Noroeste. The movie WATERSHED, narrated by James’ father, Robert Redford, was screened, which tells the story of one of the greatest environmental restoration opportunities of our time: an ambitious U.S-Mexico cross-border effort to reconnect the Colorado River to its Mexican river delta.
The Movie Night featured dinner and drinks at the Punta Mita Golf Club, the open-air screening of Watershed and a special Question & Answer session with filmmaker and Redford Center Chairman, James Redford, together with Dr. Osvel Hinojosa-Huerta. After that? There was time to mix and mingle with cocktails under the stars!
About James Redford: James Redford writes, directs and produces for film and television. “I come from a long line of storytellers, so the idea of being compelled to make sense of things is essential to who I am and how I see the world,” he says. James has written, directed, or produced over 10 films. But it’s his involvement with the Redford Center where his passion for creating documentaries and action campaigns around issues truly shines. “Our role has always been to take complicated issues that are important and challenging and render them coherent, digestible and hopefully inspiring so people can get engaged,” James says.
