    Based on an interview with world renown linguist, political activist and anarchist Noam Chomsky, Tree Spirit is a short documentary about the human ecological crisis and the possibility of human extinction directed by Bérangère Maïa Parizeau. The interview was filmed on April 30th by filmmaker Reed Rickert (https://vimeo.com/39913934). Tree Spirit will be approximately 20 minutes in length with 4 minutes of original animation hand drawn by Germany based artist Sara N. Abtahi (http://sn-abtahi.tumblr.com). We are honoured to have Artemis Robinson (http://www.artemis.fm) on the Tree Spirit team as music director and co-producer. Asun Phong is our official web master and graphic design genius. Phong's personal website (Phong.com) is my favourite website ever!!! Please look for the project on Kickstarter.com. We will begin our fundraising efforts June 15th 2013. We received seed funding from The Pollination Project. Here is a link to the the recent blog entry on my experience interviewing Noam Chomsky. http://thepollinationproject.org/2013/05/12/berangere-maia-parizeau-noam-chomsky/ Please spread the word to help us fund this amazing and important project.

                    The Great Unspoken Tragedy of the Present Time with Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee The secret that nobody is saying is that the ecological crisis is founded upon a very deep spiritual crisis in creation. It comes from a very foundational attitude that we have in our culture towards creation, a primal forgetfulness of its sacred nature. Excerpted from the talk Spiritual Ecology given at the Mercy Center in Burlingame, CA on December 3, 2011. DVD with complete talk available here: http://tinyurl.com/6mpc8v4

                    • Planet in Peril: The Beauty and Loss of Our World

                      15:44

                      from Christian de Quincey Added 212 1 1

                      Experts say we've got about 20 years left to "Earth Crash." Look around you: We have a beautiful world, a beautiful mother. Mountains are her breasts, rivers and oceans the blood of life. Her forests, lungs. She has given us everything we have and are. Yet, because of us humans, she is now in crisis—not just her rivers, oceans, forests, and mountains, but also her islands, tundra, wetlands, and deserts, along with all the species that live there. I created this short video some years ago as a companion to my book "Radical Nature." I wanted to celebrate the beauty of our world. I wanted to move people, to touch them deeply—using the powerful medium of images and music. "Planet in Peril" is the result. I first started showing this to small groups a couple of years before Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth." We all know how successful that movie was. Yet beyond the startling facts and alarming data, something else is needed to reach down into our souls. That's the intention behind this work. For about 20 minutes, please find a quiet place without distractions—preferably with some friends—and let the beauty of our home planet embrace, inspire, and move you. Experts say we've got about 20 years left to "Earth Crash." Let’s not start all over again . . . We've got too much to lose.
