The Green Chain: Seeing the Forest or the Trees?


Looks like all things green are hot in the movie world. Not so long ago we brought news of The Shift, a movie that sets out to define the increasingly intertwined environmental and social justice movements, and TreeHugger Neal gave DiCaprio's 11th Hour a resounding thumbs up. Now, via Kristin's myspace tipster (and sacred tree), The Golden Spruce, we get to hear about yet another important sounding green movie. The Green Chain is a documentary that sets out to explore the complex relationships between forests, loggers and environmentalists:

"The battle between loggers and environmentalists is defining, dividing and destroying communities in Canada and around the world. The Green Chain is a powerful, funny and thought-provoking film about the conflicts between people on both sides of the battle who love trees -- and are willing to risk anything to protect their personal visions of the forest."

Apparently the film is currently premiering at Montreal's World Film Festival — we'd love to hear from any readers who have seen it. ::The Green Chain:: via The Golden Spruce::
