Stop! Filming the Change is a documentary filmed by a team of women & collectively financed. During one month we journey through different alternatives between Spain & France searching out ways of life which are more respectful of the environment & the people who live there.
The theory of de-growth in which we base ourselves warns us of the impossibility of keeping on producing as we have in a planet of finite resources. These levels of consumption have led to the disappearance of forests, to contaminated rivers & seas, & toxic food systems ... all of which are fed by the financial speculative markets & a political class that doesn't care about the social or environmental dimensions.
How much longer can we wait in order to have a world-wide planetary change? Is it possible to live happily whilst reducing drastically our needs?
This is a documentary about ecovillages and permaculture seen from a sustainable consumption perspective. The intention is to show an example of lifestyles that take sustainability to the extreme, living and consuming in a way that causes minimum impact on the planet.
There is a great resource of articles on EcoVillages on the GEN site, which you can download in pdf format:
