A Film Review on "Revolution"

Stand out of the fake symbiosis of producers and consumers full of greed; you are now part of our green revolution - for saving 'ourselves', for saving 'humankind', for saving 'life'.
I truly get more inspiration by Robert Brian Stewart himself as the director of the movie (documentary) and the little boy in the movie who visits the UN Climate Change Coalition's Conference in Mexico for the purpose of saving life from the catastrophic effects of climate change. The emotional scenes make us think twice and reflect on what we have been following in our daily lives - this should shake our lords (producers of the consumer goods that we consume) and wake them from a deep numbness of 'competition'. The movie is embedded at the bottom of the blog; and I strongly recommend you to take some seconds to read my blog-review on the movie before deciding to scroll down for it.

The characters in the movie - a biologist, a young activist, an indigenous activist, a teacher, students scientists and all have their stories to share and together one can make a theory explaining what has been happening to the oceans, marine biodiversity and ultimately the life on earth because of the corporates that rule the world,our governments, and ultimately us.

We blame on corporates for their competition on resources and profit-making. We blame on governments being unable to exercise that copes with sovereignty of people. We blame on this and that, but we failed to reflect critically on our actions .. this is the important missing line in the theory of climate change. So, the 'revolution' for reversing the climate change and other effects like ocean acidification, improving the support systems to ascertain life on earth we need to act to change ourselves and on parallel act together for making our earth a place to live. I intentionally omitted the word 'better' - because scientists also in this documentary are warning a threshold trigger that would permanently damage the life support system on earth.

A young film-maker from Canada who is already recognised by Toronto Film Festival, who is among us in the revolution to save life on earth, deserves gratitude from me whose team found me over internet and provided the movie for me to watch and share my thoughts on it. I will be getting a DVD from him shipped to me, I will be giving that DVD to a school in Nepal which has successful stories on producing greener generation of young graduates. Let me see which institution could be that.

I am pretty sure that you might wish to see the movie if I add some key features of it: inspiring on-the-ground-story plot, life threatening risks, beautiful life under the ocean, science and indigenous knowledge, change that has already started, governments that bow down in front of corporates' interests, power of transformative education and many more. If you pay some amount to view it, one dollar goes to WWF - the worldwide fund for nature.
