So How Did We Get Into This Mess? - a 20 Minute Summary That Goes Back 10,000 Years

An excerpt from What A Way To Go: Life At The End Of Empire (Part 3: The Locomotive Power). 

Featuring interviews with Daniel Quinn, Derrick Jensen, Jerry Mander, Chellis Glendinning, Richard Heinberg, Thomas Berry, William Catton, Ran Prieur and Richard Manning.

What is it doing to us as thoughtful human beings as we face the overwhelming challenges of:
-Peaking fossil fuel flow rates?
-Critically degraded ecosystems?
-A changing climate?
-An exploding global population?
-Teetering global economies?
-An unstable political climate?
And what is it doing to the rest of the life on this planet?

What a Way to Go looks at the current global situation and asks the most important questions of all:
-How did we get here?
-Why do we keep destroying the planet?
-What do we truly want?
-Can we find a vision that will empower us to do what is necessary to survive, and even thrive, in the coming decades?

"What a Way to Go is the advanced course for those who are intellectually and emotionally prepared to examine critically our way of life - the viewer takes away ideas, even subversive ones.", -A comparison with The 11th Hour by Keith Thomas at the Nature and Society Forum

Films For Patrons: Donate $5/mo to Gain Access to These Great Films

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 access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 24 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "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 or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page.
