Investigating man’s crimes against Antarctica and its creatures in his Congress of Penguins (Der Kongress der Pinguine), Swiss filmmaker Hans-Ulrich Schlumpf can’t resist anthropomorphizing the waddling, flightless bipeds. It’s an understandable temptation, and reportedly the documentary’s elegant images more than compensate for the awkward narration; in conjunction with the “Environmental Film Festival.” At 8 p.m. at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden’s Ring Auditorium, 7th & Independence Ave. SW. FREE. (202) 357-2700. (MJ)
