NERVE: How a Small Kentucky Town Led the Fight to Safely Dismantle the World's Chemical Weapons
UofL's Engage Lead Serve Board, hosts this screening of an increasingly timely "truth to power" film by Louisville filmmaker, Ben Evans.
NERVE tells the remarkable, 25-year David vs. Goliath origin story of the Kentucky Environmental Foundation - a small band of ordinary citizens who, led by Vietnam veteran and 2006 Goldman Prize-winner Craig Williams, took on the world’s most powerful bureaucracy (the Pentagon) and empowered people around the world to stand up for their human and environmental rights.
It won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2016 Environmental Film Festival at Yale and features an original score by acclaimed Louisville composer/singer/songwriter, Ben Sollee. There will be a panel to discuss the film and the impact of chemical weapons, featuring the director, Ben Evans, and two representatives from Kentucky Environmental Foundation (KEF).
