Eating Animals – Official Trailer | HD | Sundance Selects

How much do you know about the food that’s on your plate? Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, Eating Animals is an urgent, eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming. Tracing the history of food production in the United States, the film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate Frankenstein monster that offers cheap eggs, meat, and dairy at a steep cost: the exploitation of animals; the risky use of antibiotics and hormones; and the pollution of our air, soil, and water. Spotlighting farmers who have pushed backed against industrial agriculture with more humane practices, Eating Animals offers attainable, commonsense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal rights issue but one that affects every aspect of our lives.

 

Why I Left Greenpeace

Patrick Moore explains why he helped to create Greenpeace, and why he decided to leave it. What began as a mission to improve the environment for the sake of humanity became a political movement in which humanity became the villain and hard science a non-issue.

‘Jeedara’ The Film – Sea Shepherd Australia

In 2010 BP was responsible for the worlds largest oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico. Over several months, the rig spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the ocean, killing millions of animals and destroying the surrounding environment. Less than a year later, the Australian Government signed papers allowing BP to come to Australia and drill in deeper and rougher seas. In 2016 The Great Australian Bight Alliance announced the launch of ‘Operation Jeedara’ – a campaign that would see the ‘Steve Irwin’ sail into the heart of the Great Australian Bight to document the beauty of the region in order to showcase what we would all stand to lose if we let BP drill there. This film is the story of the campaign. Please help us the continue the fight for the Bight here: seashepherd.org.au/donate or to find out more about the alliance go to fightforthebight.org.au

Examining the contentious issue of whether or not to drill for oil in Alaska’s Arctic National wildlife Refuge

It is also the area where the caribou deer come to calve — the lifeblood of the native community. They, understandably, are hostile to the proposals: “People who are trying to live a subsistence lifestyle are now very frustrated because the impacts of development have come very close to home,” says Rosemary Ahtuangaruak, deputy village mayor. But the US government sees it differently. Rather than reduce consumption, Bush wants to increase America’s oil reserves, and he denies that the coastal plain will suffer damage. Surprisingly, many Alaskans themselves approve of the proposals; 85% of their state revenue is from oil, which helps finance government services. Shots of the Alaskan coastline provide a stunning backdrop to this bitter and emotional debate.
