The film-lover's guide to taking environmental action in the first 100 days of the new White House administration.
With threats to roll-back environmental regulations and international climate programs, we’ve been taking strength from the films and filmmakers in our SF Green Film Festival archive.
Each week we’re going to provide you with a film suggestion to arm you with the knowledge, ideas, and inspiration to resist Trump’s environmental agenda.
Together we’ll watch and learn from the people taking on the climate deniers, standing up to power and offering up new solutions.
Here are the film suggestions so far.
And what better place to start than with the You’ve Been Trumped Trilogy from director Anthony Baxter for Inauguration Day, on January 20.
Since the first film, You’ve Been Trumped (SFGFF 2012), Baxter has taken great risks to penetrate the ongoing operation of Donald Trump and his designs to take away people’s homes, land and water for his destination golf course in Scotland.
The second film A Dangerous Game (SFGFF 2014), charts the eco-impact of luxury golf resorts around the world.
