Three wonderful films

The following movies are worth a look:


We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate.

The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

The movie is now online available for free on Youtube. In only four month it got almost 2.7 million hits. Send the movie to you friends. After watching the movie they will understand your engagement for a better world. If you are interested we could try to get the DVD for you to distribute it in your community and the media.

The man who planted trees

The Man Who Planted Trees tells the story of a solitary shepherd who patiently plants and nurtures a forest of thousands of trees, single-handedly transforming his arid surroundings into a thriving oasis. Undeterred by two World Wars, and without any thought of personal reward, the shepherd tirelessly sows his seeds and acorns with the greatest care. As if by magic, a landscape that seemed condemned grows green again. A film of great beauty and hope, this story is a remarkable parable for all ages and an inspiring testament to the power of one person. If you are interested we will send you the DVD to distribute to your friends and the media.

The Lessons of the Loess Plateau

The real story of when in 1995, The World Bank and the Chinese government began the “Loess Plateau Watershed Rehabilitation Project”-its largest development project to date. It ambitiously set out to restore what was destroyed in over 10,000 years on an area as big as France. “The Lessons of the Loess Plateau” is a hopeful representation of how to protect our natural systems, even those previously thought impossible to save.

If you wish we can send you the DVD to distribute it to the media. This film is by John D. Liu who also supports Plant-for-the-Planet.
