Recipe For Change | Building an Earthship in Ushuaia (2014)

48

The first feature length documentary having been conceived by the Valhalla Movement, Valhalla follows the story of Earthship Biotecture down in Ushuaia, Argentina as they and a group of academy students build a two room simple survival Earthship.

Earthships are fully off the grid buildings which catch their own rainwater - create their own food and energy - are made using recycled materials and treat their own waste all the while doing such in a very stable temperature eco construction that has begun to make waves around the world.

These buildings and the ecological movement has been gaining ground online for years but there still seems to be a challenge in our everyday life in making positive sustainable change come to life.

This documentary shines light on the simple recipe for creating this change that can allow us to radically change our outlook on the problems our world faces and our ability as individuals to make it happen.

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
