“Muerte Es Vida” ("Death Is Life") film showing

Thursday, March 2, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

In this award-winning documentary about the connection between nature and grief, seven people are each given a touch of hope by a visit from a Monarch butterfly at a time of loss. Every year, Monarchs undertake an epic journey from Canada to Mexico, where they arrive in time for Day of the Dead. In Mexico, they’re thought to be the souls of loved ones coming home to visit. Following the film, stay if you like to share your own stories of being moved by Monarchs. Free, and open to the public.

Presented by: Monadnock Conservancy, Harris Center for Conservation Education and the Keene State College Film Society.

End the trek with a treat of hot chocolate and cider donuts.
