2/28: Reflection: A Walk with Water

A Walk with Water is created by filmmaker Emmett Brennan who walks 200 miles next to the Los Angeles aqueduct in search of a vision for the future - and what he discovers has everything to do with water.⁠

3/28: Nature's Cleanup Crew

Nature's Cleanup Crew is directed by filmmaker Robin Bicknell, written by Allen Booth, and produced by Robert Lang. It examines the lives of busy scavengers living amongst us in cities as they recycle the waste our consumer society leaves behind. The film explores what makes scavengers tick, debunks myths about them, explains what benefits they provide humanity, and how we as humans can work with them. In the end, it shows us the respect nature's cleanup crew deserves.⁠

4/25: Our Story - The Indigenous Led Fight to Protect Great Chaco

Our Story - The Indigenous Led Fight to Protect Great Chaco is co-directed by Michael Ramsey and Daniel Tso. The documentary shares how the Diné and Pueblo people who have been directly impacted by oil and gas extraction in the Greater Chaco region, are protesting. Rarely is the story of extraction and land defense told from their perspectives as they fight to protect the well-being of their communities, sacred sites, and the integrity of the landscape.

More than 91% of the available lands in the Greater Chaco have already been leased for industrialized fracking, with a fight to preserve the last 9%.

The documentary emerges from a long-standing collaboration between local Diné leaders in the Greater Chaco region, Pueblo organizers, and a small team of community-engaged filmmakers.

5/30: The Map to Paradise

The Map to Paradise is from executive producer Martin Sheen and is an adventure-filled tale about the birth of the global movement to protect the sea. It is filmed across six continents with the goal to show underwater worlds while discovering what it takes to build a movement and create positive change.

The Map to Paradise shares an urgent environmental wake-up call and wonder about the kind of beauty that exists in the world.⁠

6/27: The 12th Hour

The 12th Hour is narrated by Emmy-Nominated actor David Morse, produced by Jim Swift, and directed by Susan Kucera. The film addresses climate change from a brutally honest perspective. Noted evolutionary biologists, climate scientists, cognitive researchers, and psychologists take part in this documentary.

Climate change is a long-term challenge and yet our brains are evolved to solve short-term challenges. How can we bridge the gap between these modes of thinking?⁠
