The Night's Movies
Magic of the Snowy Owl: 60 Minutes - A team of intrepid filmmakers provides an intimate look at the snowy owl, a bird made popular by Harry Potter’s faithful companion Hedwig. Though “snowies” naturally stand out for their beauty, intelligence & charm, in their eerie, bleak Arctic home it is their determination and survival skills that are truly magical. (Watch Preview)
Mother: Caring for 7 Billion: 60 Minutes - Mother, the film, breaks a 40-year taboo by bringing to light an issue that silently fuels our largest environmental, humanitarian and social crises - population growth. Since the 1960s the world population has nearly doubled, adding more than 3 billion people. The film illustrates both the over consumption and the inequity side of the population issue by following Beth, a mother, a child-rights activist & the last sibling of a large American family of twelve, as she discovers the thorny complexities of the population dilemma and highlights a different path to solve it.
