Day 282: Waste Watch Wednesday – Recipes for Disaster

recipes3I’m giving you fair warning here, so if you’re in the Vancouver region,  make time to check out Recipes for Disaster showing next Thursday.

This project obviously hits a chord with us because:  a) it’s a year long project based on arbitrary, but environmentally oriented rules, and b) they filmed it themselves

It’s a film about an Anglo-Finnish family trying to live without oil based products for a year.  Just think about that for a minute.  That obviously means no gasoline, but it also means no plastic!  I haven’t seen the feature length version yet, but apparently this little project produces quite the strain on the family dynamics.

‘This is a film about climate change. About catastrophe. And it’s funny, painfully funny. We love to blame the corporations and industries for what’s going wrong with the planet, but we are mistaken. It’s us, baby. You and me. We’re the real bad guys.’
– John Webster, Filmmaker
