On a 20 ans pour changer le monde (We Have 20 Years To Change The World) // 

by Hélène Médigue | 1h 26min | Documentaire | 2018 (France)

"We have 20 years to change the world… and it all starts with the land that nourishes us. The facts are there: 60% of the soil is dead, and the current mode of production does not feed the planet. But men and women rise to the challenge and demonstrate that we can do without pesticides and chemical inputs for all our food. Thanks to their communicative energy which shakes up speeches and habits, another world is possible!"

Larmes de bois (Tears of Wood)  // 

by Patrick Rouxel | 26min | documentary | 2004

A visual essay on the extraordinary biodiversity of the Indonesian rainforest. This silent film follows the peaceful wondering of a dominant male orangutan, showing the forest from his point of view. It also underlines the link between tropical hardwood and the trees of the rainforest. This is the first film I made when I decided to do my part to help rainforest conservation in 2003. The title of the film is also the name of this website because it seems to capture the essence of all my films.

Ferdinand must convince everyone to work together until the waters recede.

The mobilisation in Paris showed: The fight against climate change has evolved into a full grown global grassroots movement that unites people with all kinds of different backgrounds and motivations.

Qu'est ce qu'on attend ? (What are we waiting for )  // 

by Marie Monique Robin | 1H 59min | documentary | 2016

Who would have thought that the star of transition towns would be a small French municipality? Believe it or not, it is Rob Hopkins himself, the founder of the Transition Network, that says so. “What are we waiting for?” tells the story of the multiple initiatives that have allowed this small Alsatian city of 2.200 inhabitants to reduce its ecological footprint.

by Cyril Dion, Laure Noualhat | 1H 12min | documentary | 2018

Two years after the phenomenal success of the documentary Demain (Tomorrow), Cyril Dion looks back at the initiatives that the documentary has inspired. He takes with him his friend Laure Noualhat, a renowned ecological investigator and very sceptical about the ability of micro initiatives to have a real impact in the face of climate change. Their humorous confrontation pushes them to their limits: what works, what fails? What if, in the end, all this forces us to invent a new story for humanity?
