A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet is the first big-picture exploration of the international environmental movement, grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years, from conservation to climate change. Inspired by the book of the same name by Philip Shabecoff and informed by advisors like Edward O. Wilson, A Fierce Green Firechronicles the largest movement of the 20th century. The film unfolds in five acts, each with a central story and character covering conservation, pollution, ecology, sustainability and climate change. Surrounding these main stories are seams of rich story-telling about environmental justice, the movement back to the land, and other struggles such as that of the Chipko in India and Wangari Maathai in Kenya. Vivid archival film is matched with insightful interviews, offering a deeper global view of environmentalism as civilisational change, bringing our industrial society into sustainable balance with nature.
