This new, internationally acclaimed feature film exemplifies how independent media initiatives can be powerful tools for social and environmental justice organizing. Challenging the isolation and impotence that many are feeling in the face of the current health and racial crises, the award-winning documentary The Condor & The Eagle and its impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities" bring us together in these challenging times – reminding us of our deep interconnectedness with the Earth and one another.

Regarded by EcoWatch magazine as one of the "7 best new documentaries about global warming” (March 2020) that “exemplifies how independent media initiatives can be powerful tools for social and environmental justice organizing,” (June 2020) the film is breaking new ground in the distribution world, working directly with impacted communities and the organizations fighting for climate justice around the world.

The film impact team is joining with influential partner-organizations including Sierra Club, Amazon Watch, Rainforest Action Network, Extinction Rebellion and many others to host powerful and moving online events, presenting to large audiences the inspiring work being done by land defenders across the Americas.

The Condor & The Eagle takes us on an extraordinary transcontinental adventure with four Indigenous leaders, taking them from the Canadian boreal forests to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle in their quest to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of "climate justice." The award-winning documentary offers a glimpse into a developing spiritual renaissance as the film's four protagonists learn from each other's long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy.

Never-before-seen images expose the global rise of land and water protectors across the continent. The recent burning of the Amazon, the mega-fires in Australia, and the global climate strikes have changed things completely. This far-reaching film documents the ongoing collective climate awakening and the imperative of urgent change.

According to the ancient Andean prophecy, when the Eagle and the Condor reunite, the world will enter a new era of peace and higher consciousness. This film explores the meaning of that prophecy in the modern industrial context. Its makers and protagonists hope that it will be a vehicle to help manifest that reality. You can become a part of that prophecy. Help us spread the word about the film release and the amazing events we are organizing!

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 23 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, feel free to get in touch!
