  • This is what filmmaker Jane Turville had to say on the Population Media Center website about her documentary three years ago when she started the project:

    "Over the next three years, I am committed to making THE PEOPLE PROBLEM: ARE THERE TOO MANY OF US? This will be a four part series (four one-hour segments) that explores population growth under the inclusive umbrella of sustainability – ecological, social, and economic balance. My goal is to (a) alleviate fear about discussing population and (b) translate compelling information into visual stories that resonate with mainstream citizens. The series will be distributed to PBS stations nationwide by the National Educational Television Association. Pending full funding, it will be ready for broadcast in Spring 2015. The series will also be available to international audiences and a 90-minute documentary film suitable for screenings and festivals will be created from the series content."

    This is Jane's bio from her Kickstarter page for the documentary where you can see a trailor:

    "Jane Turville is the Writer, Producer and Director of THE GREENEST BUILDING, an award-winning documentary on the role of historic preservation/building reuse in creating sustainable societies. THE GREENEST BUILDING is currently being broadcast on PBS stations nationwide. Previously, Jane co-produced the documentary A PASSION FOR SUSTAINABILITY and is the director/producer/writer/editor of five short narrative films. In addition, she is the recipient of several screenwriting awards. Prior to her career in filmmaking, Jane worked for several architectural firms and more recently as the development director for a sustainability nonprofit. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Oregon. Jane lives with her husband, Dave, one dog, three cats, two bunnies and a turtle near the Clackamas River in Oregon City."
