Story of Three People
7 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Elemental' follows three very real people as they work for change in their chosen fields.

One is a swami seeking to clean up the Ganges River, one is a first nations mother fighting the pipeline at the Tar Sands, and one is a scientist/inventor using nature's inspiration to solve some of our most vexing global problems.

It's one of the best 'green' movies I've seen, and I've seen a lot.

The movie will not leave you feeling depressed, or necessarily hopeful, either. I think it's a good blend of art, story and nonfiction, and points the way forward in the genre. People want to follow people, especially people who have a good story behind them.
