Mike's Beautiful Life is a hard-hitting indictment of how corporate power has taken a wrecking ball to the environment and our health. Can Washington help the run away train we are all riding? The seeds of four related crises (energy, food, resource depletion, and climate change) were planted in the 20th century, during Mike's beautiful life. These seeds will bear fruit in the upcoming years and will shape our future, and the future of generations. The next 30 years will prove to be a turning point in human civilization. 


 From viewers:

• "Mind-blowing!" 
• "It could not be more timely or relevant." 
• "An incredibly important and moving film." 
• "Charming, humorous, horrifying - and riveting!" 
• "The most thought-provoking film I've seen in decades." 
• "The most explicit projection of future events I've ever seen." 
• "Sure to be one of the most controversial films in a long time!" 
• "A courageous film which reveals the ugly truth behind a beautiful life." 
• "Potent and powerful. Extremely well written and very carefully crafted." 
• "If this film doesn't move people to do something for the planet, nothing will!"

Find out the real cost of what we are doing to ourselves - and what you can do about it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
