Move Picks

The United States produces 390 billion pounds of garbage every year, and finding places to dispose of it is a serious environmental and economic challenge. But what if we could change the way we think about garbage, from something to be disposed of to something to be harvested? THE LANDFILL profiles a small county landfill in Upstate New York, which is using a system of composting, recycling, and methane capture technology to operate sustainably while producing electricity for 400 homes in their area. By focusing on the people and ideas behind this innovative waste-to-energy initiative, THE LANDFILL shows the beauty and potential of the stuff we throw away.

    A community health clinic is ignoring the status quo and their methods are nothing short of revolutionary. This short doc captures their inspiring story of generosity, reminding healthcare professionals they make a life changing difference. It’s rare that I’m given the freedom to make a film for an organization about human stories of hope and forgiveness. Even more rare for a project to change me. Normally there’s an agenda to push. In this case, the agenda was unconditional love. Official online release is tomorrow #GivingTuesday
