RENEWAL (USA, 2008, 88 min.)
Across the nation, people of faith are standing up for the environment. Evangelical Christians are fighting mountaintop removal, a coal mining process that is decimating Appalachia. Muslims are supporting sustainable farming. Jews are helping children experience the bond between nature and spirituality. Interfaith Power and Light is mobilizing people of all faiths in a religious response to global warming. For the first time, the combined energy of these diverse activists is the driving force behind a feature-length documentary. Veteran filmmakers Marty Ostrow and Terry Kay Rockefeller have crisscrossed the country to capture these exciting stories of people whose passion and deep moral commitment are making a difference in a time of grave ecological threats. Directed and produced by Marty Ostrow and Terry Kay Rockefeller.
Introduced by Chris Palmer, Director, Center for Environmental Filmmaking, American University. Discussion with filmmaker Martin Ostrow follows screening.
