Nebraska State Climatologist Martha Shulski will give a talk, “Nebraska’s Climate, Past and Future,” at the Science on Screen® event at the Midwest Theater on Thurs., Mar. 22, at 7 p.m., the Midwest Theater.

The film’s protagonist, Lauduree (Perla Haney-Jardine, is a 13-year-old loner, passionate about nature and obsessed with ecological disaster. Greta (Amy Madigan), her grandmother, is a fiery 50-something nurse jaded by alcohol and disappointment. When Lauduree’s mother runs away to pursue her long-held dream of becoming a make-up artist for the stars, Lauduree tries to make it on her own, clinging to the secluded rural trailer where she lives, to see through her personal carbon sequestration experiment. The film is not rated, but is comparable to a PG or PG-13 movie.

Event partners and sponsors for this event include the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Panhandle Research and Extension Center, Western Nebraska Community College, Farm Credit Services of America, Walther Farms, Trail Animal Clinic, the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
