A Fierce Green Fire

2013 | 101 minutes | Rated NR

A documentary in five parts, A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet looks at the history of the environmental movement. It has great interviews with people who are involved with all facets of the struggle, and it has some amazing footage. I don’t think the film is supposed to make you feel so demoralized that you want to give up on trying anything, but that’s the effect it has. While there are plenty of grassroots movements fighting to protect the environment, the film shows they have little top-down support. Governments won’t join international environmental treaties (ahem, United States), many citizens are apathetic, and leaders don’t want to impinge on “business,” even if it means destroying our planet.
