Dear Videonews Subscribers,
=20
The United Nations reports that each year, across the globe, more people =
are displaced by environmental degradation than by war. As sea levels =
rise and climate patterns shift, the number of environmental refugees =
will only increase. This timely new film reveals a crisis of global =
proportions, taking the audience from the sinking islands of the =
Maldives in the Indian Ocean, to the tar sands of Canada, and on to the =
eucalyptus plantations of Brazil.
=20
"A full cinematic meal. Beautiful, poignant... even though [the] scope =
is enormous-from the effects of global warming to deforestation to sour =
gas drilling-the directors always manage to bring it down to the micro =
level." - Vue Weekly

THE REFUGEES OF THE BLUE PLANET
A Film by H=E9l=E8ne Choquette and Jean-Philippe Duval=20
=20
This hard-hitting documentary brings us to the heart of one of the major =
issues confronting humanity. Each year, millions of people are forces =
from their homes as environmental refugees. Global warming and the =
unbridled exploitation of natural resources are degrading the =
life-supporting environments of rural populations. This film sheds light =
on the little-known plight of a category of individuals, whose numbers =
are growing. Whether they've taken place in the developed or developing =
world, the disturbing accounts are amazingly similar. (2007, 53 min)
