5 Movies that Can Save the Planet:

Countdown to Earth Day Through Cinema

“You are the last best hope of Earth. We ask you to protect it or we,
and all living things we cherish, are history.”
Leonardo DiCaprio, from Before the Flood

Earth Day is April 22nd, and studies now confirm that film is one of the most powerful tools to create change. Yes, more than just pure entertainment, movies can make a difference. With this in mind, we will be introducing new movies each week this April, covering a range of categories connected to our precious planet earth. Equally important, you will see links to Take Action for each film. The hope is these engaging projects will inspire action.

We begin this journey with the film that kick started the movement…

An Inconvenient Truth

In 2006, An Inconvenient Truth was produced by Participant Media, and went on to become one of the highest grossing documentaries of all time, and take home the Oscar for Best Documentary. Who knew that a movie version of a slide show on climate change by Al Gore could become such a successful film? Or create a movement? This film really set the stage for the climate change crisis.

It had such a profound effect on me that I transitioned back into filmmaking and decided to focus exclusively on socially relevant projects from that point forward. I was sold on the idea that a movie could really spark change.

Love Thy Nature

Narrated by Liam Neeson, this unique film takes us on a unique journey into the science and meaning of nature. Neeson represents Sapiens, yes as in “homo sapiens” or the modern human species. Through Sapiens’ journey, the film shares how connection with nature triggers a profound sense of meaning and wonder, of what it really means to be human. Presenting the spectacles of our planet, with amazing cinematography, we can appreciate how a deeper connection, and appreciation for what the earth provides, can really transform us as a people.
