Critic Reviews for Earth Days
If you're feeling nostalgic for a time when the environmental movement was something everyone embraced, Robert Stone's Earth Days is bound to comfort -- and alarm.
Honoring the heroes of the environmental movement is clearly appropriate, but getting mired in nostalgia is a dirty shame.
Yes, the future still looks grim and whales are hunted here as they are in all such films, but Stone spends most of his time tracking something positive -- the birth of the environmental movement in the '60s and '70s.
Earth Days captures those years when through sheer relentlessness, activists broke through to the public and put the mounting disaster at its doorstep.
A surprisingly engaging ecodocumentary about the history of the American environmental movement from the Depression era up to the present.
Audience Reviews for Earth Days
Saw at the Wisconsin Film Festival. Fascinating history of the things that worked and what didn't in the environmental movement in the US. Wonderful to have the legends of the struggle talk about what they did and where they think they failed and what they are doing now.
