The Revolution Movie | By filmmaker and eco-warrior, Rob Stewart l WWF-Canada Blog | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it

I used to think saving sharks was the most important issue on the planet, but after Sharkwater was released, I met with numerous scientists and conservationists who told me: “What you’re doing is great, but you’re missing the point. We’re going to lose everything, and if we do, there won’t be any sharks left to save. By the middle of this century, we could have no fish in the sea, no coral reefs, no rainforests, nine billion people without enough food, and a planet that can’t sustain many forms of life.” That’s when I set out to make Revolution.

Justin Nalepa's insight:

Conservation, climate change, environmental sustainability...they're all really important issues that need to be addressed and time to do so is running out. Rob Stewart's new film takes a global perspective on the current issues which threaten the preservation and continuance of life on this planet.

HEARTWOOD: Forest Guardians of Cortes Island

HEARTWOOD: Forest Guardians of Cortes Island | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it
Citizens on a remote BC island take on big timber as they try to end industrial clear-cutting and build a new kind of forestry economy.
Justin Nalepa's insight:

I'm very supportive of sustainable ecosystem developments, so I'm interested in seeing how this situation plays out. I like the transmedia component as well, but creating it will probably be as equally challenging if not more than finishing the film.
