'Fall and Winter' is a documentary film which explores the origins of our global crisis - and the ingenious adaptations needed to survive the catastrophic transition we've entered.
Please watch our new extended teaser on our website: FALLWINTERMOVIE.COM
A little over a year ago, a small group of us set out across the United States with a camera. Our intent was to interview a diverse group of people and investigate how we’ve ended up with such an overwhelming global crisis. We were deeply concerned about the many societal, technological and environmental catastrophes which we now face, and the connections between them. So we left from Los Angeles on a 15,000 mile voyage to see for ourselves how this crisis is effecting the country we live in, and hopefully learn what we can all do about it.
From our first interview onwards, we found ourselves completely shocked by the answers to our many questions. What began as exploratory journalism soon became a mission to understand and document as many dimensions of this crisis as possible... What is the health of the earth’s soil? What is the direct human toll of the Gulf oil disaster? How will our species have to adapt to survive the catastrophic transition we've set in motion?
This journey lead us everywhere from the clear cuts of Northern California to the Fishing communities on the Gulf coast, over the gaping crater of Bingham Canyon mine in Utah and into the industrial ruins of Detroit. Along the way we sought out people directly engaged in developing alternatives to our industrial civilization; a civilization which has pushed life on earth to the brink of collapse. From listening to a chorus of people fighting for truth, beauty and justice, we believe we have captured the essence of a new culture that is forming and will flourish in the seasons ahead.
Despite the great challenges we face as citizens of this planet, I am seriously encouraged by the vision and efforts of the people we’ve interviewed. Their work is more important than anything else I can recommend. Please help us finish this film so we can share these inspiring perspectives (and beautiful images) with you!
Your support is crucial. We have just completed filming, and now we need funds to pay for editing expenses and the assemblage a rough cut. The Kickstarter money will be used to buy an edit station, hard drives, process footage, record music for the film, pay for a sound mix and color correction.
For backers of this project, we are offering rewards directly from some of the individuals we've interviewed such as a Grow Biointensive workshop from John Jeavons and autographed books by Cousteau Society Marine Ecologist Richard Murphy.
On our website, FALLWINTERMOVIE.COM you can watch a new extended trailer, learn more about our project and all of the people involved.
Please back our film if you can, and spread the word so we can finish this film as fast as possible!
And thank you to everyone who has supported our project thus far. To those who've given money and moral support, challenged us, inspired us, cooked us food from their garden, shared their homes and lives with us, we sincerely appreciate your support... We’re all in this together!
