help the best climate movie of the year get out and get us together 

This movie. Speaks directly to the heart of climate change resistance.  It takes you to the brink of despair and then builds you back up. I cried. I danced. In fact, the whole audience danced, standing up out of their seats. And you will too.  Trust me.

Now, filmmaker Josh Fox (of Gasland) is touring the country, stopping in 100 cities, many of them threatened by fracking, mountain top removal, and pipeline construction to help unite small grassroots movements.

There is ONE DAY left to donate to the Kickstarter that Funds the tour, which you can do here! Josh is still $25000 from his goal, so boost, boost, boost!

new documentary on wendell berry premiers at SXSW festival

Print

The Seer: A Portrait of Wendell Berrypremiered yesterday at SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin. The film spans four seasons; revolving around Berry; his muse of Henry County, Kentucky; and this pivotal contemporary moment in agrarian America. Barbara J. King did a great piece on the film yesterday for NPR, ripe with great Wendell Berry quotes and some contextual food for thought, all of which you can read here.

I scoured the internet for a trailer like a hungry squash bug but to no avail. So I watched every video of Wendell Berry reading his poetry that I could find on Vimeo (wondering if this is how normal people felt about news of the new Star Wars movie), and finally did find a video on the film’s new kickstarted page, which I have happily embedded for you below:

No news yet on where the film will show after SXSW, but you find our more and follow the latest news here.
