• UNCG Film Series 'Little Yellow Boots'

    Weatherspoon Art Museum

    How can one help one’s grandchild, or great-grandchild, fifty years from now? What do we pass on to those who come after us, for both good and for bad? And what difference can one person make in the world? These are the universal questions that occupy director John Webster in this cinematic letter to his great-grandchild, a girl called Dorit who will be born in the 2060’s, and who’s little yellow boots will walk on a very different shoreline to the one we knew. Taking as its starting point a personal experience of loss that has been with John throughout his life, we are taken on an emotional and physical journey from Finland across Russia to the coal mines of Siberia, to the Marshall Islands in the Pacific, and across the USA to New York. The story seamlessly weaves together past, present and future into a beautiful, moving and hopeful documentary film about the power of each of us to make a difference. Little Yellow Boots / Tulevilla rannoilla (95min, 2017)

  • UNCG Film Series: 'Behold the Earth'

    ABOUT THE FILM Behold the Earth is a music-rich documentary film that explores America’s divorce from the outdoors through conversations with legendary scientists E.O. Wilson, Cal DeWitt, and Theo Colborn, as well as a new generation of creation-care activists within America’s Christian communities. Katharine Hayhoe, Ben Lowe, and Corina Newsome are close observers of nature bearing witness to creation, asking tough questions about church engagement with environmental issues. Film Director and Conservationist David Conover boldly began this highly original film 12 years ago, as an inquiry into America’s divorce from the outdoors, before-and-after the arrival of those known as the digital natives. He is neither scientist nor Christian. He draws upon some of the same talented field staff behind the spectacular natural sequences in his series Sunrise Earth and Big Picture Earth. Four time Grammy-award winning musician Dirk Powell leads the arrangements of traditional American tunes and hymns, with Rhiannon Giddens and Tim Eriksen.
