Deep Green (2010)
- Summaries (3)
Called "a template" for getting off fossil fuels by the Los Angeles Times and praised for "offering hope instead of despair" by the Oregonian, this award-winning documentary ignites the debate on global warming with compelling examples of the ingenuity and resourcefulness being devoted to conquering the escalating climate crisis before it's too late. Over three years in the making, "Deep Green" was the culmination of a quest that began in the 1990s for Portland-based filmmaker Matt Briggs, when he first noticed the damaging effects of global warming on Northwest forests. Concerned, he attended scores of conferences, including the first of ten Bioneers in 1999, and spent four years pouring over the latest research through scientific journals and more than 400 books. When "Deep Green" began principal photography, many of the solutions-such as the first solar thermal plants, hybrid electric cars, and living buildings-had not advanced beyond the concept stage, or were just being built. Features visionaries Lester Brown of the Earth Policy Institute and bestselling author Michael Pollan, among several dozen global authorities. Filmed in nine countries, including China, by a team of world class cinematographers. Winner of the Environmental Preservation Award by the Artivist Film Festival.
Almost every time we use energy, we burn carbon. Every time we burn carbon, we heat up the atmosphere. It's a dirty fact that Global Warming cannot be stopped as long as fossil fuels run our planet. In 2006, Al Gore's Oscar-winning motion picture, "An Inconvenient Truth," took us into the heart of the problem. Based on years of intensive research, "Deep Green" reveals the solutions as we accompany filmmaker Matthew Briggs on an epic journey to uncover the best people with the best ideas, strategies and cutting-edge technologies to reverse man-made global warming in time. Inspired and inspiring, "Deep Green" will leave you believing we can fix this-if we go deep green now.
