Description

When I Plant A Tree, directed by Jonah Moshammer (5:31 minutes)
Cuando Planto Un Árbol (When I Plant A Tree) is a portrait of environmental change centering around an Ecuadorian natural sciences teacher Moncho. The film depicts how Moncho's family went from being loggers to environmental stewards, focusing on issues of deforestation and education.

Fishermen Without A Sea, directed by Lucas Bonetti (20 minutes)
A look behind the official clean-up campaign for the 2016 Rio Olympics, Fishermen Without a Sea reveals the struggles of local fishermen and environmentalists to retain their way of life in the face of environmental degradation. Sérgio, a wise old man of the sea at only 65, reminisces about the old days when the sea teemed with marine life and points to the forces that are destroying artisanal fishing. This film brings into harsh relief the danger facing anyone who cares about the future of Guanabara Bay, its watery wildlife, and the people who care for them all.

The Next Epoch Seed Library, directed by Candace Thompson, USA (8 minutes)
Two artist activists use the seeds of 'spontaneous urban plants' as a lens for discussions about land use, climate change and evolution, challenging the anthropocentric notions of value, ownership, and indigeneity along the way.

The Last Boat Out, directed by Laura Seltzer-Duny, USA (28 minutes)
Last Boat Out is about a family of Virginia watermen trying to preserve their way of life working the waters. It is also about a bay battered by development and pollution yet struggling to stay alive. It is a story of neglect, mistakes, diminishing harvests, and development run amok, but it is also a story of hope and human determination. This film is part one of a trilogy about communities who are directly effected by the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
