86 minutes — G, DV, Mathieu Roy & Harold Crooks, Canada, 2011
Based on Ronald Wright’s bestseller A Short History Of Progress, this not-a-moment-too-soon doc examines how our desire to thrive is undercutting our ability to survive as we fall into "progress traps" — technologies and practices that serve immediate needs, but ransom the future. With Stephen Hawking, David Suzuki, Margaret Atwood and Jane Goodall.
