Big Issues on the Big Screen

Manufactured LandscapesTwo Sierra favorites are going to be making a splash at Sundance. The directors of Blue Vinyl will premiere their latest movie, a documentary about climate change, at the prestigious film festival in January. Everything's Cool follows a group of "self-appointed global warming messengers...on a high stakes quest to find the iconic image, proper language, and points of leverage to help the public go from embracing the urgency of the problem to creating the political will necessary to move to an alternative energy economy." Sounds a little wonky, but based on their engaging, personal last film, we'll give Judith Helfand and Daniel B. Gold the benefit of the doubt.

The event will also mark the U.S. premiere of Manufactured Landscapes, a Canadian doc about Toronto-based photographer Edward Burtynsky, whose uncomfortably gorgeous images of large-scale environmental destruction have wowed me for years.

See you at the movies!
