Norma’s Story – Climate Change in Old Crow, YK.

https://www.nfb.ca/film/normas_story#temp-share-panel

Norma Kassi’s true story about living off the land and the changes to her environment due to climate change.
It is important to realize that in Southern Canada and the USA, we may not feel the impacts as much as the people in the North or people in countries overseas do. The lands and the people on it are impacted the most, yet they are in no way contributing to the increase of Carbon dioxide and other Green House Gasses in the same scale.

This is a beautiful short film, with an important message:
Tread Lightly

In New York there are Six Nations Against Fracking – Documentary

Please click-through and watch the video on Vimeo!

Be mindful of the actions you partake in and if those actions help to continue life, or destroy it.

2 years after this film was made, fracking is still an issue. Do you think we will ever open our eyes and begin to make vital changes? Or is the future too far away to plan for…

A documentary about the sinking of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior in 1985 on their way to protest France’s nuclear testing in the Pacific.

I am doing a presentation about this historic event in class today. I thought it may be important to know some of the history behind groups like Greenpeace and their efforts for a better, more sustainable world.

Fracking our lives away.

Gasland 2 is the sequel to an American documentary that focuses on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and what happens to regular people because of the gas industries we support everyday. If you drive a car, heat your home, own a cellphone OR eat food that doesn’t come from your backyard WATCH THE DOCUMENTARY.

Do you know there are places in America that don’t have any clean water because of fracking?

Dimock, Pennsylvania’s water is flammable because of improper disposal of waste water from drilling. There is gasoline and methane in their drinking water!

Undeveloped Film Project -Essential in Understanding our Histories

I just watched this mini-doc on Kam70‘s blog.  It’s about The Rescued Film Project and the discovery/processing of 31 rolls of film.  Its not just ANY film. These photos were taken by an American WWII soldier 70+ years ago!

The project itself is crucial. In attaining a complete understanding of our history as humans, we can understand things from a deeper perspective. Somebody’s voice speaks through the images. They capture glimpses into a world so removed from our own.  The fact that this man is saving old film and developing it is SO important to attaining a better understanding of our roots and the construction of values we have today.

∴ Film is vital •

It shouldn’t something written off, nor should it become obsolete. (more…)
