Welcome

This is an unusual project. Thanks to underwriting from our supporters we are able to offer this enriched and curated collection at a fraction of the usual cost and 30 colleges will receive it for free.

Each year we plan to add several more titles at no additional cost to subscribers. By the third year, if the subscription base is large enough, the project will be self-sufficient. Your subscription will support this project.

A Curated Collection

Faculty at Whittier College, Yale, Brandeis and NYU selected 25 documentaries and are writing teaching guides. The subjects range from the hidden costs of fast fashion in Asia and forest preservation in Tibet to inner-city environmental issues in the US. Together these films promote understanding of the link between environmental issues and human rights and they support the search for solutions to complex global problems.

Enriched Viewing

Teaching guides developed by faculty provide

  • Context
  • Discussion questions
  • Activities

We are faced not with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather with one complex crisis which is both social and environmental.
