iPat Film series shows 1965 movie ‘Crack in the World’

The iPat environmental film series screens its first movie of the year with a nod to UW-Green Bay’s 50th anniversary. At 7 p.m. this coming Monday (Nov. 16) in the Christie Theatre, they’ll show the 1965 release “Crack in the World,” with an introduction and discussion led by Assistant Prof. Ryan Currier of the NAS department. The entertaining film portrays the fanciful tale of two geologists, married to one another, who promise the world plentiful, cheap, geothermal energy if only they can detonate a nuclear warhead inside the Earth. Up will come the magma, they say. But magma isn’t all they get. The iPat Film Series (impact = population * affluence * technology) is sponsored by PEAC, The Center for Public Affairs, and the Department of Public and Environmental Affairs.
