In honour of Earth Day and all things springlike, this week Reo’s Movies like to highlight films from our EcoSociety section. Some of our favourites include:
Age of Stupid – a future archivist looks at old footage from the year 2008 to understand why humankind failed to address climate change.
Eco Pirate, The Story of Paul Watson – chronicles the extraordinary life of the most controversial figure in the environmental movement; his heroics and his ego
Escape from Suburbia – the film that brought “Peak Oil” into the mainstream
Wasteland – an uplifting social documentary based around the lives of garbage pickers in Rio de Janeiro.
Winged Migration – beautiful doc on the migratory patterns of birds, shot over the course of three years on all seven continents.
