The Story of Stuff

The Story of Stuff
But the truth is, it’s a system in crisis, and the reason it’s a system in crisis is it’s a linear system and we live on a finite planet, and you cannot run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely. From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute,...

The 11th Hour

The 11th Hour
Comparisons to Al Gore’s Oscar-winning slide show will be inevitable, but there’s a key difference between the two documentaries.
