This film examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations.
End: CIV is part based on the best selling book, Endgame by Derrick Jensen. The documentary asks: If your country was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?
Backed by Jensen’s narrative, the film calls on us to act as if we truly love this land. The film trips along at a brisk pace, using music, archival footage, motion graphics, animation, slapstick and satire to de-construct the global economic system, even as it implodes around us.
End: CIV illustrates first-person stories of sacrifice and heroism with intense, emotionally-charged images that match Jensen’s poetic and intuitive approach.
