"Shark Loves the Amazon," 10.m., Sat., March 11,

Can 21 million people and the rainforest share the same space? That's the question posed in "Shark Loves the Amazon," based on the experiences of Mark London, an attorney who visited the biodiverse rainforest many times over three decades. Following the screening, experience Conservation International's virtual reality short film, "Under the Canopy."

And stay for the post-film discussion with director Cidney Hue (right), as well as Amy Rosenthal, Program Officer for Conservation and Sustainable Development at the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Also learn about ways to take action from R. Carson of Edward Jones' Socially Responsible Investment funds. Watch the trailer.
