Just passing this message about the Environmental Film Festival—I may be
going to the Margaret Mee film—the National Museum of Women in the Arts is
about a 20 minute walk from Natural History and close to Metro Center.

Subject: Environmental Film Festival features film about Margaret Mee

I work with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital and am 
wondering if you'd be willing to help us promote the screening of this 
amazing film called MARGARET MEE AND THE MOONFLOWER,  which will be shown 
during the 21st annual Environmental Film Festival on Mon March 18 at 7:00 
pm at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. 

Can you make sure that notice about this very special event is circulated 
throughout the Botany Department at the National Museum of American 
History and added to your events calendar? Any help at getting the word 
out would be greatly appreciated. 

For a description of the film,
see: http://www.dcenvironmentalfilmfest.org/films/show/993 

As you already know Margaret Mee was a botanical illustrator whose 
technique is recognized worldwide and is regarded as the work of one of 
the great European illustrators of all time. She spent 36 years in Brazil, 
where she organized and carried out 15 expeditions to the Amazon 
rainforest, leaving behind an important artistic legacy.

The Environmental Film Festival, March 12 through 24, presents 190 
documentary, narrative, animated, archival, experimental and children’s 
films selected to provide fresh perspectives on environmental issues 
facing our planet. The vital role of rivers and watersheds in the global 
environment is a special theme of the 2013 Festival, which features 
cinematic work from 50 countries and 110 Washington, D.C., United States 
and World premieres. Some 196 filmmakers and special guests will discuss 
their work at the Festival.
