WVN Films in the Sptlight
Each month, WVN brings you a curated selection of films revolving around an important theme in the fight for women’s global rights.
This month’s theme:
Women and the Environment
The natural environment is inextricably linked to a community’s overall wellness. This delicate relationship is often threatened by natural factors, such as climate change, and also man-made interventions, such a logging or mining. How can a community protect itself against these threats, against nature and against companies looking to profit off the environment? What role can storytelling play in healing after destruction or in igniting change itself in the face of natural and/or bureaucratic obstacles? Explore these and more issues in this month's theme.

Social psychology research long ago succeeded in establishing a relationship between cinema and human behavior. The dynamic bestows upon a filmmaker the power and privilege of molding subject matter for the purpose of transmitting a particular message. I keep this fact handy when I am on the set and endeavor to transform thoughts into the subtle world of visual medium.
