Planet in Distress

Andes Amazon Water

Andes, Água, Amazônia
Marcio Insensee e Sá
Doc | 2012 | 22min | Brazil/Ecuador

Although different, the Andes Mountains and the Amazon forests are part of the same system: the water born thousands of miles up the top of mountains runs through and floods the plains feeding the most bio diverse forests on the planet. Decision makers, leaders, and often, the inhabitants of the Amazon basin, do not consider or are aware of this relationship. Natural resources are used impacting ecosystems and the people who depend on them, either upstream or down.

Sand Wars

Denis Delestrac
Doc | 2013 | 74min | France/Canada

After fresh water, sand is the most consumed natural resource on the planet. As a logical consequence of this exploitation, sand’s limited reserves are threatened today. “Sand wars,” triggered by building booms, are raging everywhere in the world and ¾ of the planet’s beaches are in decline and bound to disappear, victims of erosion and - as hard it might be to comprehend - smuggling.

Christopher Walker
Doc | 2012 | 28min | Belgium

How international oil companies intend to expand tar sands mining around the globe – focusing on the case of Madagascar.

Unacceptable Levels

Edward Brown
Doc | 2013 | 90min | USA

Currently, we have over 88,000 chemicals in our system of commerce, and some of those are going straight into our bodies, and even more importantly, our unborn children as well. Due to this constant exposure, we have over 200 synthetic industrial compounds that are interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that dynamic is changing. Unacceptable Levels” opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies are being exposed to, so we can make informed decisions and make a difference.

Belo Monte’s Invisibles

Los Invisibles de Belo Monte
François-Xavier Pelletier and Magnolia de Oliveira
Doc | 2012 | 59min | France

The film goes to the heart of the Volta Grande do Xingu in the Brazilian Amazonia, where the very controversial Belo Monte hydroelectric dam is building to meet, discuss and question the actors in this announced drama. See, hear and understand why this human, animal, vegetable and mineral environment must not disappear. A new and humanist approach that gives voice to the "invisibles" and denounces inconvenient Truths.

Chasing Ice

Jeff Orlowski
Doc | 2010 | 75min | USA

In the spring of 2005, National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk. Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.

SemperFi: Always Fatithful

Rachel Libert and Tony Hardmon
Doc | 2011 | 75min | USA

Marine Corps Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger was a devoted Marine for nearly twenty-five years. As a drill instructor he lived and breathed the "Corps" and was responsible for indoctrinating thousands of new recruits with its motto Semper Fidelis or "Always Faithful". When Jerry's nine-year old daughter Janey died of a rare type of leukemia, his world collapsed. As a grief-stricken father, he struggled for years to make sense of what happened. His search for answers led to the shocking discovery of a Marine Corps cover-up of one of the largest water contamination incidents in U.S. history. Semper Fi: Always Faithful follows Jerry's mission to expose the Marine Corps and force them to live up to their motto to the thousands of soldiers and their families exposed to toxic chemicals.
