Since I write about film from an ecocritical perspective, I feel obliged to share information about the greening of filmmaking practice. Transforming Cultures has a post about that.
Here’s the trailer for Lauren Selman’s/Real Green Media‘s Greenlit, a film that, like No Impact Man, appears to fall into the “it’s the right thing to do, but aw, shucks, isn’t it hard?” genre of eco-documentary. It won’t get everyone running to the theaters, but it’s good that someone’s doing it. (There should be an abbreviation for that: “igsdi,” meaning “not my thing, but I’m glad someone’s doing it.”)
Now someone tell me what the dominant color is in this trailer… (Giordano Bruno would say it’s under the spell of Venus, which he thought a good thing.)
