“If we never look at the consequences of our behavior, we can always maintain the illusion of our competence. ." Dietrich Dörner
via: Al Jazeera "WITNESS" Expose (:45 minutes) Please have the courage to see this extraordinary weaving story to the end.
"Green" is an unusual film. It is both a hard hitting portrayal of the causes and consequences of deforestation in Indonesia, and a film which captures the tranquillity and calm of wild nature. It contains no narrative or dialogue and yet helps us understand complex commodity chains. The film takes viewers on an emotional journey, following Green's final days and revealing the devastating impact of fulfilling unbridled consumerism thru logging, land-clearing and palm oil plantations.
Stunning images of the natural world and its biodiversity are counter-pointed with scenes of their destruction and the resulting loss of all life in the forest. NOTE: This film contains upsetting scenes including cruelty to animals.
