The Great Transformation

 

What am I?” is a short film realized by the winner of the first award at Germanwatch’s new script competition. Producers were asked to hand in script ideas along the lines of an ongoing NGO project called “Dialogue on Transformation”. The well-known guessing game “What am I?” is played by four friends all representing one of the multiple crises which could challenge the social-ecological equilibrium on earth: food crisis, climate crisis, depleting fossil fuel reserves and financial speculations. Soon, the four friends guess the roles they are representing – and the first easy going atmosphere darkens. They agree on a second round of the game – with changed signs: This time, they want to take positive solutions as their roles, and all of them unknowingly choose the same term: The Great Transformation. Script by Ben Toussaint Produced and directed by Boris Laaser More information on the issues mentioned above on http://www.germanwatch.org or http://www.dialogue-on-transformation.org

  1. Stuart, I became aware of ‘Germanwatch’ when I looked at a recent post by Gerard Oosterman.
    ‘food crisis, climate crisis, depleting fossil fuel reserves and financial speculations’
    I reckon these are subjects well worth studying. So important especially for future generations! 🙂
