Survival of Spaceship Earth
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

There is no film quite so man-humbling as "Survival of Spaceship Earth," produced for the first ever United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. Director/writer Dirk Summers has created an astonishing film that, even today, must still be the most significant Environmental Documentary ever produced. It should be on the "must see" list for anyone who cares about planet Earth. The New York Times said of this landmark film, "If brains are washed theatrically, we call it propaganda ("JFK"). If minds are cleared of painful debris, we begin to recognize art. "Survival of Spaceship Earth" is art."
