Sand Wars is a surprising investigation into one of the most consumed natural resources on the planet. Due to the high demand for sand, the planet’s reserves are being threatened. Three-quarters of the world’s beaches are in decline and bound to disappear as victims of erosion, or of sand smuggling. Triggered by building construction, smuggling bands, or “sand mafias,” plunder beaches and rivers for this highly prized commodity. Sand Wars will take us around the world to witness this new gold rush firsthand.

POPULAR DVD THIN ICE: The Inside Story of Climate Science

THIN-ICE-DVD-COVER_smIn recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so concerned geologist Simon Lamb grabbed his camera and set out to explore the inside story of climate research. For over three years he followed scientists from a wide range of disciplines at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the United States. The result is an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet’s changing climate and provide a compelling case for rising CO2 as the main cause.

"This documentary is based on three farms and two books that are bringing a lot of hope and real solutions. It is also about the official point of view of the United Nations regarding farming, climate change and the protection of life on earth." (excerpt from the film)

This inspiring documentary presents three ecologically responsible farms in the USA and Canada.
  Their unique business plans eliminate the middle man, use sustainable methods and few fossil fuels and show a decent living can be made! These new farming practices avoid the destructive trap of industrial food production and its financial burden.

With the participation of Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations and leading USA environmentalist, author and educator, Bill McKibben, this documentary provides critical information to develop an enduring, local food network in a time of climate change.

The three farmers features in this film are:
  • KRISTIN KIMBALL, author of The Dirty Life and farmer of Essex Farm
  • JEAN-MARTIN FORTIER, author of The Market Gardener and farmer of Les Jardins de la Grelinette
  • LAUREN RATHMELL, greenhouse manager of Lufa Farms
This documentary also includes the official point of view of The Convention on Biodiversity, the UN office specialized in the protection of life on Earth, about the links between climate change, biodiversity and farming.

I read the market gardener and then listened to a podcast featuring Jean Martin Fortier. I am totally impressed with what he’s accomplished. We have been doing CSA for 20 odd years. We know the hard work that goes into it. We also are strong believers that this is the way well have to feed the future generations, glad that somebody did an inspirational film on market gardening and responsible agriculture in general.
- Linda Borno, farmer in BC, Canada

I discovered this film after reading an article about Jean Martin Fortier’s market farm in Quebec. I am also a fan of Kristin Kimball farm model. Like many of my friends I tends to be very interested in environmental and sustainability issues. I imagine there are several regions in the U.S that would warmly receive your film.
- Ryan Metz, Denver

Your documentary is really interesting! … With very good examples of new farming methods, environmentally and economically viable.
