MOVIE: 7:30 PM Skaneateles Library, 49 E. Genesee St. The City Dark: A

Search for Night on a Planet that Never Sleeps – A film by Ian Cheney. Sustainable Skaneateles

will present this film about the loss of the night sky and how to get it back as a follow-up to their

very successful Earth Hour events. This sometimes humorous documentary follows the

filmmaker as he moves to NYC after growing up in rural Maine and asks a simple question, “Do

we need the stars?” Along the way we hear from Neil deGrass Tyson, Ann Druyan and a host of

others describing the spiritual and intellectual loss as well as the health effects of too much

artificial light at night and what we can do to correct it. The film is about an hour and a half, and

a discussion will follow.

Popcorn provided! No need to register, just drop in. (315) 685-

5135.This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV

(www.pbs.org/pov). It will also be broadcast on PBS on Monday, August 12, 2013 at 10:00 PM.
