Pushing Through the Pavement: A Permaculture Action Story

5

It’s true; musicians can be a catalyst for social change!  Watch the inspiring story about the first Permaculture Action Tour, with music producer The Polish Ambassador, that covered over 9,000 miles though 33 cities and 19 states, from San Francisco to New York City, spreading funky beats and permaculture action. 

The film tells the story of the Permaculture Action Team traveling with musicians The Polish AmbassadorAyla NereoMr. Lif, and visual projection designer Liminus, working with local organizers and fans in each city to get their hands dirty building the world that we want to live in.  With coverage of the entire 6 weeks on tour coast-to-coast, and over 40 interviews with permaculture designers, educators, and practitioners, the film is packed with exclusive TPA content, behind-the-scenes footage, and sustainable solutions.  Amidst the global theater of climate change and a variety of other social and ecological problems, this film introduces permaculture as a practical solution we all can implement now, from the micro to the macro. We have all the power to make the world we want to live in!

“While the world’s problems become increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple” – Bill Mollison

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide free access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 20 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a very, very tiny Netflix for world changers, but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!

Cheers,  Tim Hjersted
