Art and Culture Mondays by Bronte Hogarth
Today the medium of film is ingrained in many aspects of society and culture. It certainly plays an important role as a medium at the intersection between people and the environment.
For example documentary films, which have a presupposed element of truth, and present stories or information in an easy to digest way, with supporting evidence, interviews, facts, stats and most importantly imagery!!
Here are 3 must watch documentaries with an environmental focus –
- Gasland – Documents the sever health and environmental consequences of gas drilling.
- Wasteland – Which shines a light on waste, poverty and the environment in Brazil (reflective of our waste problem around the world.
- Bag It – A film about the journey of the single use plastic bag; from its convenience for everyday things to how it affects our waterways, environment, the ocean and our bodies.
Documentaries aim to teach and/or instruct through a creative filmic structure, and help inspire or motivate people to take action on issues in their everyday lives.
