Join the UT Geography Society and the Department of Geography and the Environment in celebrating Geography Awareness Week (GeoWeek) 2013!

The Geography Society is sponsoring a showing of "The Milagro Beanfield War" a 1988 film directed by Robert Redford, selected for its relevance to the field of geography. This film is about people and place, and explores concepts of water rights and the struggle between state, economic, agricultural, and community interests. There are also stylistic elements of Magical Realism in the film. Enjoy free popcorn and a thought-provoking movie with fellow geographers!
