Can movies inspire conversations about climate?

Movies, like books, graphic novels, and manifestos, can awaken, inspire, and energize people. People talk about movies all the time with their friends.

We’re waiting for movies that inspire people to imagine how we can get to a restored world, with a healthy air, land, and water, and enough resources for all people, flora and fauna to flourish.

We welcome your suggestions of other movies to add and your comments and mini-reviews. See the start of our listings at this Google Doc.

NOTE: We’re looking for an editorial/distribution partner for this project — or someone to turn it into a big deal! In the future it will be findable at and/or
