The Ad and the Ego
The average American is exposed to 1500 ads a day. This relentless barrage of messages not only trains us to buy, buy, buy, but also effects our values, identities and sense of what is "normal." Highly provocative, this video makes the connections between consumerism, environmental degradation, and our blind faith in growth at any cost.

Ancient Futures: Learning From Ladakh
Ladakh is a beautiful desert land high in the Western Himalayas, home to a vibrant, self-contained culture. And then came Westerners with pollution, inflation, unemployment, and greed. Both the book and the video provide extraordinary insights about the cultural and environmental problems of development.

Fury for the Sound: The Women at Clayoquot
It is estimated that 80% of environmental activists world-wide are women. This is the story of hundreds of women, ages 8 through 80, who were arrested in 1993 for refusing to let loggers clearcut the last vestiges of old growth rainforest in Clayoquot Sound in Western Canada. Modeled after the anti-nuclear Greenham Common peace camp in England, this video is a tribute to women's power to protect our planet.
