  1. This was a great film
    a bit on the glum side but necessary for certain people to take wake up and note

    I said more on it here

  2. Well if you liked AoS, you’ll revisit the broader HOME film on the World Environment Day website many times.

    This is a very thorough exposition of human impacts on the planet emphasizing our depletion of resources of all kinds: energy, water, air, climatic balance, ocean life, forests, soil and biodiversity. Unlike AoS, Home acknowledges that we are refusing to believe we are at the end of easy oil; it also covers the resource curse, poverty, distribution, displacement and population. The parallels with Easter Island get a mention.

    Supported with facts and figures, this is a very refined film with absolutely breathtaking photography. It ends on a positive message: that it is now too late to be a pessimist; it’s not about what’s gone, but about the solutions lie in what remains. Giving examples of what could be done, it asks what we are waiting for ?
