MOVIE REVIEW OF ...
Anima Mundi

Documentary; Released: 2011

This 'Anima Mundi' review written by Mark Jeantheau, Grinning Planet.

DVD cover for Anima Mundi Anima Mundi explores the systemic crisis we face—we know the system is broken and will eventually fail, but we are so depended on it, we cannot get rid of it. Meanwhile, the planet's life support systems are changing in a way that will not be good for humans (and many other species).

The film lays the blame for the ecological crisis on the "scientist worldview"—common among technologists, industrialists, politicians and consumers in the Western world—which treats the world as something to exploit and dominate rather than something to integrate with.

The film asks the viewer: Will you survive the transition of human industrial civilization happening now due to peak oil and climate change? Can you see the forest for the trees, the earth for the dream, the universe for the seed?

Anima Mundi uses the Gaia hypotheses to inform the best response to the crisis—that we need to move from today's tightly integrated, centrally controlled system to a highly distributed network of loosely connected systems based on local production and control. That's good advice, and Anima Mundi presents the case well. Interviewees include top thinkers like Vandana Shiva, Michael Ruppert, and David Holmgren.

A Wilderness Too Tame — When was the last time you were really in the wilderness? Or, maybe you’re like the millions of Americans who’ve never even been in the wild before. Jason Mark, editor of Earth Island Journal, shares his misgivings about what he views to be a technological threat to some of nature's most mysterious spots. He says much of what we currently consider wild is actually pretty tame. Also discussed are conservation policy and the surprising number of bipartisan conservation bills that (unsurprisingly) have not yet been passed by Congress.

GP comment:  I suspect most of us would find true wilderness highly inconvenient, if not incredibly daunting.

David Suzuki on Corp-Gov Anti- Environmentalism — We live in an upside-down world where the people who would protect the natural systems that sustain us (environmentalists) are openly declared enemies of the state, where corporations fund a big-media propaganda machine dedicated to false statements about global warming and other environmental issues. David Suzuki says the "kill the messenger" strategy is ripped straight from big tobacco's old playbook. While he is concerned that humans are setting themselves up for a fall, he is more optimistic about the chances for "the planet"—it's highly resilient (though we are not).

Kevin Danaher on the Green Future — Kevin Danaher says people often react to the proposal of good grand projects with the attitude, "sure, that will be great for the future." But "the future is now" in terms of implementing projects that will correct current problems and pay dividends for the era of our grandchildren. He talks about this year's green festival and green goals in general.

GP comment:  Danaher's pitch is appropriate and enthusiastic. But if I have to pick between people being greener consumers and people knocking the wheels off the bankster-industrial complex, I'll take the latter. If you pay for your green purchases with bankster credit cards, what's the point?
