A New Breed of Environmental Film
Malamud, Randy
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n33 pB19 Apr 2008
In this article, the author reports how today's environmental film festivals feature a new breed of documentary that offer nuanced narratives about intricate technologies. The author relates that the environmental films he grew up with sedately depicted the quiet sublimity of the wilderness. Today's films, the author observes, aim far beyond a placid nature niche and insist upon making connections between people's indulgent living habits and the environment. Today's films do not assume that simply showing audiences an animal or a mountain will automatically induce a comforting faith in the awesomeness of nature.
