PEKKA >> Women Headed Household Empowerment
— May 21, 2009
Community video on keeping the environment clean in Aceh villages.
— February 26, 2010
Short film by David Nerlich 1998. From deification to demonisation, the changing icon of the life-giving sun in the age of ozone depletion marks a spiritual decay that follows in the wake of the physical decay of our natural atmospheric defences. The advent of an evil sun icon also represents a neurotic abnegation of blame onto the sun for what is really the result of destructive human activity. This 3D animation follows a dreaming monologue, with transient voices and imagery floating and exchanging meaning.

EM in NY - Prof Z on FLEFF
— November 16, 2010
The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival at Ithaca College embraces and interrogates sustainability across all of its forms: economic, social, ecological, political, cultural, technological, and aesthetic. The festival is in the spirit of UNESCO’s initiative on sustainable development. This initiative has redefined and expanded environmental issues to explore the international interconnections between war, disease, health, genocide, the land, water, air, food, education, technology, cultural heritage, and diversity. Through film, video, new media, installation, performance, panels, and presentations, the festival engages interdisciplinary dialogue and vigorous debate. It links the local with the global. And it showcases Ithaca College as a regional and national center for thinking differently—in new ways, interfaces, and forms—about the environment and sustainability.
