A campaign to sell Cleveland International Film Festival movie tickets to the celebrated Finnish documentary, ‘TALE OF A LAKE’  and Western Cuyahoga Audubon donation tickets to support local conservation education programs.
‘TALE OF A LAKE’ focuses on the miraculous ability of thousands of Finnish freshwater lakes and rivers to renew and restore vital ecosystems. The film tells the story of ancient mythological animal symbols, and engulfs us in fantastic cinematography of pristine forests. We are captivated by the industrious work of lake animals - such as the beaver - up-close and personal, and entranced by the lush symphonic score of composer Panu Aaltio, awarded twice BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR A DOCUMENTARY from the International Film Music Critics Association, first in 2013 for the nature documentary Tale of a Forest, and in 2017 for the follow-up Tale of a Lake, for which he is also nominated for a Jussi Award.
In honor of the film, ‘TALE OF A LAKE’, Western Cuyahoga Audubon has created ‘LAKE ERIE LEGENDS’, a 12-part mini-series that offers a bird’s-eye view into the lives of citizen scientists, ecologists, artists, and municipal and government officials dedicated to Lake Erie environmental conservation.
‘LAKE ERIE LEGENDS’ is about how Lake Erie has been altered by humans and similar to the water spirits that took care of the water folk in ‘TALE OF A LAKE’, this story collection explores how those living along Lake Erie are the water stewards and care takers of the Lake. Native American Indian legends, traditional music, and photography of Lake Erie’s iconic shoreline, waterways, landscapes and animals combine to complete the story of today’s Great Lake Erie.
Our campaign goal is to sell movie tickets to ‘TALE OF A LAKE’ and Western Cuyahoga Audubon ‘WATER SPIRITS’ donation tickets to grow membership and support for conservation education programs. Our intention is to raise public awareness for regional and global organizations who steward species conservation and strive to protect Lake Erie and all freshwater ecosystems around the world.
‘WATER SPIRITS’ donation ticket combinations include a limited number of pre-purchased movie tickets, access to ‘LAKE ERIE LEGENDS’ at our website, chapter news and updates, discounted one-year memberships and member benefits, and a limited number of signed, commissioned “Scenic Slides” especially designed by Cleveland stained glass artist, Bruce Buchanan.
