A beautiful film about our future, about hope

I honestly cant remember when I last reviewed a movie / documentary, however, I fell in love with the message of this documentary. Its a story of whats happening to our planet. What we are doing to our own, our only home. A home we all share with other residents who have been turned into guests & slowly killed off one by one, by us.

Far more entertaining, saddening, thought provoking, guilt triggering & as if knowing our need / desire for a twist at the end, hope bringing & pasting a smile to our face at the end. The message is clear, we have been making mistakes, however, we still have time, together we all can bring a change, a change for happiness & place for every creature on this planet.

And to make the review a bit more personal, I want to share, how its affected me. I love bags, I actually love leather. As a geek, I really really care about my backpacks, shoulder bags etc. I actually have over 20 bags and keep on the lookout for expensive brands, unique designs etc. I have just deleted all the references / link to the sites. I have plenty, its time I used the damn bags, the twenty themselves will last me my lifetime.

Watch this movie, for your own knowledge, for the guests of this planet, for your children. Nevermind, just watch it for yourself.

Primer on the looming extinction.

An excellent overview of the situation which all inhabitants of the earth are facing. While I didn't much care for the "Save the Whales" mentality which bookends this documentary, I do recognize that this is a point to which the general public can relate.

The core of the issue is found in the middle third of this film: acidification. To summarize; what good is saving whales, dolphins, tuna, or seahorses now if all sea life will be extinct in the 23rd century? Kelp and jellyfish excluded. That is the issue of ocean acidification which excess CO² exacerbates, so watch that portion of this documentary twice. Then perhaps watch a Ted Talk or read a book on this specific subject. I would recommend the talks given by Dr. Alex Cannara; Acidification, Climate & Energy found at youtu(dot)be/rzoW_cVg2hE.

If you don't catch this idea in the film, I'll spell it out here. Plankton (Pteropods) do three things; 1) they absorb CO² and sequester it in their tiny shells which fall to the bottom of the ocean should they not get eaten. 2) Pteropods are sometimes eaten and form the base of the oceanic food chain. Nearly half the human population lives near the ocean and is part of that food chain. 3) As these bit of plankton take in CO² for nourishment, they also give off oxygen. In fact, slightly more than half of all oxygen on Earth is resupplied in this fashion.

Currently Pteropods are already under duress as a species and numbers have begun to dwindle. Extinction in the 23rd century for nearly all invertebrates & vertebrates is looming - and human activities are 99% of the problem. As I wrote above, watch the middle third of this documentary closely. We have a few decades to avoid this extinction scenario. Let's act wisely.

Good message but not that great as a documentary.

The message contained in this documentary is a very important one and it should be watched and understood by as many people as possible. The problem is that the direction of it is kind of dull. It jumps from point to point without much cohesion. It doesn't contain anything you haven't heard before. I found the editing to be a little choppy, cutting off interviews mid-sentence to show us an image then continuing half a minute later. Nitpicky stuff, I know, but they can become distracting.

The more serious issue, for me, is that we have a very good presentation of the problem, but we have very little talk about solutions to the problem other than "don't give in and be hopeful and come help us protest". Which is a good reaction, but not a good solution.

It's more of a sensationalist presentation that will try to sensitize you into action, rather than break down the problem and possible solutions to it. It brings a breath of naive hopefulness with it, accompanied with profound sadness, which make for a good combination.

If you are interested in the more in-depth aspects of environmental dangers we face today, then I suggest you find another documentary to watch, such as The Corporation, Earth, Crude Awakening and others.
