Seriously Green – The Movie
These pieces represent some of work in progress on the upcoming documentary “Seriously Green”
During an era when it is fashionable to “Be Green”, what does it mean to be seriously Green? Our premise is that being seriously green goes way beyond buying recyclable products and composting. It is a political awareness of social and environmental justice and transparency in government. And while that work starts mostly by making demands upon our government within our own communities, without addressing the broken elements of our electoral system, change is too slow.
“”Seriously GREEN” takes an irreverent view of this election period, telling the unique story of the Presidential Candidates for the Green Party, who campaign on in relative obscurity and with little or no money. Through their personal stories, the audience begins to engage in the Green conversation in a new light. We use humor and juxtasposition to keep the audience interested in what many feel are dry subjects, like electoral and campaign finance reform, ballot access, environmentalism. While this is not an advocacy piece for the Greens, it does sympathize with the characters and endear them to the viewer, forcing us to ask ourselves the question “What is it to be Seriously GREEN”
