Stopping the next pandemic is a new challenge to the most prominent scientists. Their field studies around the world are showing that our health as humans depends on animal and environmental health. Diseases that occur in the remotest places are now our concern. We live in a connected world. We will have to preserve the environment to prevent future pandemics.

300 DAYS OF SUN, 12min., Lebanon, Documentary

Directed by Jude Chehab, Fahd
Faced with precarious access to electricity, one historic village in Lebanon harnesses the power of solar energy in a nation that receives abundant sunlight. Through the lens of an opera singer, a tailor and an environmental activist, we witness how community members seize this opportunity to become independent from private generators, instead installing new and innovative technologies that sustain both everyday life and the planet.

SHE RUN THE WORLD, 13min., India, Documentary

Directed by Koval Bhatia
In India, three women are pioneers of urban sustainability by addressing waste management issues. Despite working in male-dominated fields, these figures transform waste into construction materials, assemble community members to restore rivers, and produce zero- waste personal care products. With their stories woven together, we see that waste is filled with potential for repurposing.

REDWOOD SURVIVAL, 5min., USA, Documentary

Directed by Erik Sather
Carbon stored in fire-damaged redwoods produces new sprouts directly from tree trunk. The film is about understanding better the details at the chemical level of how these trees are able to come back to rebuild a crown of vigorous green foliage after losing everything.

DANSANG – THE FOREST, 11min., UK, Documentary

Directed by Hyelim Kim, Maria Koripas
Dansang – the forest’ is an exploration of new ways for music and movement to interact with surrounding spaces. Using the Korean bamboo flute taeg?m, native South Korean musician Hyelim Kim interacts with the landscape and soundscapes of the forest. Nature becomes a multifaceted stage (‘dansang’ in Korea), which in turn transforms simultaneously into a nest and battlefield for a musician of ethnic minority background. Expressed through Kim’s music and movements, this film (with the music and sound recorded entirely live on-site, and with a fully live improvised score) explores how the non-Western female voice could express itself within the context of the nature which is mutually shared across cultures.

DRIFTING OF A LEAF, 2min., USA, Animation

Directed by Wenpei Li
If you could have another life, do you hope to become a tree? A little leaf becomes a bird flying in the world. Is it a leaf or a bird? It does not know where its root is. Maybe the root is all this world.
