Screen Green!, an eight day film festival, brings together documentaries from 14 European countries that focus on humankind's fragile relationship with the natural world. Recent news regarding oil spills, environmental pollution and dwindling natural resources no longer concern just a minority of people but engage entire communities throughout the world.
Screen Green! puts commonplace materials and aspects of our everyday life under scrutiny (PLANEAT, Fish n' Pills, Plastic Planet). It sheds light on pollution and the impact of climate change (Green Line – Urban Transport, Pollution, Climate Chaos in the South) and discusses possible solutions (Early Learning, Selective Waste Collection – From Myths to Reality, The 4th Revolution – EnergyAutonomy). Furthermore Screen Green! presents documentaries that chart the livelihoods of isolated communities and their complex relationship to nature (Gold Futures, The Mirror, The River, Three Men and a Fish Pond, Stop, Look, Listen). Finally French environmentalist, Nicolas Hulot, will address some of the social and political issues that stand in the way of environmental solutions (One). Most screenings will be accompanied by a Q&A session with the filmmakers.
