(USA, , 2011, 5 min)
An entrepreneur returns home to his environmentally damaged coastal community to fight an ominous source of major industrial pollution.
“The New Environmentalists” share a common goal – safeguarding the Earth’s natural resources from exploitation and pollution, while fighting for justice in their communities. The film is the latest in the Mill Valley Film Group’s Emmy Award-winning series featuring inspiring portraits of six passionate and dedicated activists. These are true environmental heroes who have placed themselves squarely in harm’s way to battle intimidating adversaries while building strong grassroots support. Narrated by Robert Redford, The New Environmentalists illustrates how ordinary people are affecting extraordinary change. The six short films are “The Grid,” “The Rhinos’ Flight,” “My Toxic Reality,” “Troubled Water,” “The Solution,” and “River of Dreams.”
