San Francisco Bay Area residents will have an opportunity to view "The New Environmentalists," a film about this year's crop of Goldman Prize winners, twice in coming days: first, on October 12 at the Mill Valley Film Festival, and again on October 15 on local public television channel KQED (Channel 9) – it's airing at 7:30 pm. The film features a segment on the winner from Africa, river activist Ikal Angelei, who has led the fight to protect Lake Turkana from dams being built upstream in Ethiopia. It's an inspiring film!
