ECO 01 The Global Challenge

Questions of ecology are in equal measure personal, local, and global. The Global Challengededicates itself to this circumstance with humor and aesthetic sensibility. Breathtaking images record bees slowly emerging from thawing ice formations, and major global agricultural companies dismantle the home of a middle-class family. Green Filmspeaks up and knows how to have fun at the same time.
