Reel Earth 11: 5th Sept 4pm
Lebensader Angela Steffen :: Germany :: Germany :: 2009 :: 6 mins An awesome animation that takes a spiritual look at the interconnectedness of life. A must see by those in the know. Call of Life Monte Thompson & Chera Van Burg :: USA :: 2008 :: 89 mins A fascinating and informative film on the importance of biological diversity and the devastating consequences of the current, out-of-control extinction rate. Fronted by some of the best-respected names in ecology and environmental science, eg Vitousek, Pimm, Leaky, Ehrlich, Myers, it should be required viewing for anyone with a vested interest in maintaining the diversity of life on Earth – which as the film so convincingly explains, means all of us. Serious, rich and challenging, it rises well beyond many documentaries and explores its subject in commendable depth.
