9/10 For the Gandhi in us all

Posted by novoscene on September 9, 2008

“What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?  We must be the change we wish to see.
-Mahatma Gandhi

Be honest, did you really know the whole thing?

Taking it’s name from the famous Gandhi quote, Be the Change is the latest cultural import from those damned Canadians-“an inspiring documentary from the Living Lightly Project about people who are living more lightly on the Earth, reducing their human footprint – and loving it.”  Kinda like George Saunder’s People Reluctant to Kill for An Abstraction.

Directed by well-known Canadian activist David Chernushenk, the flick explores the motivations for, and the challenges and rewards of, trying to live in a way less damaging to the Earth.-kwan
