10 years of Flick Filosopher: developing ecoliteracy

With the many films devoted to developing widespread ecoliteracy we’ve seen lately — An Inconvenient Truth, The Great Warming, and now The 11th Hour — here’s one that deserves a wider audience. From my review of Being Caribou:

Acronyms and euphemisms are good for hiding ugly truths. Ask the average American if he or she supports “energy exploration in ANWR,” and you’ll probably get a shrug and a “what the hell? why not?” But ask about “oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge” and support drops. Confront those ordinary Americans with Being Caribou, a stunning documentary about precisely what drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would destroy, and, hopefully, it will close the debate forever.

Used copies are available on Amazon, and new ones from the filmmakers.
