From Resilience.org featured reviewer Frank Kaminski:
In honor of Earth Day, this superb, captivating documentary on overpopulation will be streaming live at www.motherthefilm.com from this Friday through the end of the month. I reviewed the original film here at Resilience this past August and have had an opportunity to get an advance look at the new director's cut version that will be streaming starting Friday. I'm happy to report that the new version adds even further depth and detail to an already exceptional film, both in content and visual presentation.
From the original review:
"[Mother] conveys its message in an engaging, visually immersive style that finds just the right balance between hard facts and ordinary human involvement."
Do the Math Documentary Premieres on Earth Night, April 21
Jamie Henn, Huffington Post
In 2006, An Inconvenient Truth helped spark a new wave of concern about global warming. Now, our team here at 350.org is hoping to spark a new wave of not just concern, but action, with a new documentary called Do the Math about the growing movement to take on the fossil fuel industry.
The documentary won't be coming out in a movie theater near you (getting films into theaters can take years and boatloads of cash). Instead, we're taking a more grassroots approach. 350.org supporters and partners have organized over 700 screenings and house parties to watch the film this coming Sunday, April 21 as part of a nationwide event we're calling #EarthNight...
