A gem of a small film on climate change
31 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

There are quite a few films about climate change; there will be many more. I like Wisdom to Survive because it has a little something for everyone: scientists and public figures whom we have heard from over many years, a sustainable gardening/permaculture representative, teachers who want to see solar installations, new age talk of spiritual struggle and expressions of great sadness at losing species and the beautiful planet as we have been blessed to know it in our current lifetime, concern for the grandchildren and those after who will not experience what we have had, an historical perspective on the relatively short time since industrialization and the speed up of the destruction of our atmosphere, and much more. It is well done with polished technical values, cinematography is quite beautiful, and it is short: short enough for people to take around to screen in church basements and schools. (59 min.) However, I hope it gets the widest possible viewing - in small theaters everywhere in North America would be the ideal destination for this little gem of a film.
