clip_image002[13]

For most of the world, consumption has been the unquestioned duty of every individual. Garbage activist Annie Leonard’s 20-minute animated video is an extremely well researched and eye-opening movie about our lifestyles and obsessions with material products and the impact on all our "stuff" has on our world. Shown in thousands of classrooms, viewed more than 10 million times, The Story of Stuff finally opens the door to a serious cultural dialog about the costs of consumption.

The Age of Stupid is a 2009 British film by Franny Armstrong, and first-time producer Lizzie Gillett. The film is a drama-documentary-animation hybrid which stars Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, watching archive footage of news clips, interviews and scientific reports from the mid-to-late 2000s and asking "Why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?" Among others, the film also features Indian businessman Jehangir Wadia, who talks about the start-up of his low cost airline GoAir and his democratic vision of a world in which all people, rich and poor, are able to afford air travel.

No Impact Man – 93min

No Impact Man is a documentary made about Colin Beavan (aka No Impact Man) and his family’s yearlong experiment to live a sustainable zero waste lifestyle in New York City. The documentary deals with a great deal of self-awareness, addressing the fact that the no impact conceit could easily be labeled as gimmickry rather than an earnest experiment to see what one can and cannot live without to have sustainable zero impact on the environment.

11th Hour – 95min

The 11th Hour is a 2007 feature film documentary, created, produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, on the state of the natural environment. With contributions from over 50 politicians, scientists, and environmental activists, including former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, physicist Stephen Hawking, Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai, and journalist Paul Hawken, the film documents the grave problems facing the planet’s life systems. Global warming, deforestation, mass species extinction, and depletion of the oceans’ habitats are all addressed. The film’s premise is that the future of humanity is in jeopardy. The film proposes potential solutions to these problems by calling for restorative action by the reshaping and rethinking of global human activity through technology, social responsibility and conservation.

Dirt – 80min

clip_image002[7]

Dirt, directed and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow is an astonishing, humorous and substantial look at the glorious and unappreciated ground beneath our feet. Dirt feeds us and gives us shelter. Dirt holds and cleans our water. Dirt heals us and makes us beautiful. Dirt regulates the earth’s climate. Why do we humans ignore, abuse, and destroy our most precious living natural resource? Consider the results of such behavior: Mass starvation, drought, floods and global warming. Narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, Dirt tells the story of humans trying to reconnect to dirt—the living skin of the earth. Traveling from the vineyards of California to the plains of Kenya, Dirt reveals how repairing our relationship with dirt can create new possibilities for all life on earth. Also features India’s Dr. Vandana Shiva.

The film details plastic’s path over the last 100 years and provides a wealth of expert interviews on practical and cutting edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability.
