Tipping Point first in Fall Film Series

The Woods Hole Research Center is proud to present the short film, Tipping Point, as part of its Fall Film Series. Tipping Point showcases our planet’s next generation of change-makers — kids who are inspiring hope by making a positive difference all over the world. Among the experts and activists featured in Tipping Point are WHRC Founder George Woodwell, WHRC Deputy Director Max Holmes and Massachusetts State Representative Dylan Fernandes.

Tipping Point was produced by 14-year-old Dylan D’Haeze and his parents, professional filmmakers Dawn and Kevin D’Haeze, of Rock Island Media. Dylan will be joining WHRC for this event to talk about his motivations for creating the film.

Dr. Holmes will discuss climate tipping points, and Rep. Fernandes will lead a short Q & A after the screening. This inspiring film is recommended for ages 10 to 110!
