In times where the environmental impacts or our modern lifestyle are evident, two UC Santa Barbara graduate students show us an alternative way to live. 'Anchored' presents the life of Rodrigo and Miguel, who live on a small 30 foot sailboat in front of the UCSB campus. From paddling to school everyday instead of driving a car, to using only their solar panels for energy, this documentary shows that our lifestyle choices might be crucial to solving today's environmental challenges. From a unique perspective, this production is a call to action for everyone, living anchored or not.
Director: Rodrigo Oyanedel
Haiti’s biological diversity was once one of the richest in the Caribbean and its mountainous topography included lush forests, beaches and arid deserts. Today, with less than two percent tree cover, the country is threatened by severe deforestation and desertification caused by natural disasters, over-use of land by farmers and livestock and harvesting of trees to sell as charcoal. “KOMBIT: The Cooperative,” produced by the award-winning filmmakers at Found Object, follows as Timberland’s global commitment to tree planting quickly progresses into the empowerment and growth of a community of Haitian smallholder farmers.
