A few minutes ago, filmmakers around the world were woken up in their beds to find out that they were nominated for an ever coveted academy award.

While we loved films like “The Artist and “Midnight in Paris,” we were more interested in seeing which eco film was going to break out into the limelight to help further the conversation on how to protect our planet and all its inhabitants. Congratulations to “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front” which was just nominated for Best Documentary Feature!

Straight from the Academy, here is the synopsis for the film. “Several years after leaving the Earth Liberation Front, former environmental activist Daniel McGowan was arrested for previous acts of vandalism. McGowan’s case serves as the central focus for an examination of the controversial group and its decision to move from nonviolent protests to a campaign of property destruction.”

Sadly, four other issue based films that had made the shortlist were not nominated, but certainly they are still worthy of seeing. Check out the descriptions of films like “Project Nim” and “Jane’s Journey.”

Now, for the trailer of the one that made it all the way to the Oscars!

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
