[Ambassador report] (Monthly Report) My favourite Environmental Movie

by Kushal Naharki | 11-01-2020 18:39 Comments 14 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



I have always been fond of movies. In this report I will be suggesting you all with my favourite environment related movies. Thousands of movies are made across the world with different issues in different genera from action, comedy, romance to family drama. With many environmental issues being raised accross the world, movies related to environmental issues are also made. I often suggest those movies to my friends, family, juniors as they motivate people towards environmental protection.

some of my favourite environmental movies are:
1. Avatar

Avatar is a 2009 American epic science fiction film directed by James Cameron. One of the highest grossing movie of all time deals with the issues of deforestation and mining. Avatar is a tale of Indigenous resistance to environmental destruction. In the film, Earth moves outward to distant planets in order to satisfy its resource hunger. In their search, Earthlings arrive on Pandora, a biologically rich planet with a diverse and complex ecosystem. In defence of their home planet, the Indigenous people of Pandora (the Na'vi) engage in combat with the earthlings over which aspect of the planet is more important: the life above or the resources below. The environmental message in Avatar is one which promotes balance and harmony between humans and nature. However, this balance is represented by the film’s essentialized Indigenous population. Thus, as a foil for Earth's technology-dependent resource-intensive society, the Na'vi are represented as a stereotypical Indigenous population; they are cast as closer to nature in their role as the "ecological Indian." By using archaic portrayals of Indigenous peoples, the film uses an "Indigenous" voice to propel its environmental message. This article visually analyzes how the film uses, produces, and perpetuates stereotypical representations of Indigenous peoples and how these representations effect and advance the film’s environmental message.

2. Wall E

WALL-E  is a 2008 computer-animated science fiction film produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures, directed by Andrew Stanton. WALL-E depicts an Earth in squalor, completely covered in trash left behind by its former human inhabitants. Director Andrew Stanton may have denied the movie's environmentalist message at the time, but the film on its own arguably showcased our planet's growing problems with pollution and waste.

3. The Day After Tomorrow
The Day After Tomorrow is a 2004 science fiction disaster film co-written, directed, and produced by Roland Emmerich. The Day After Tomorrow is loosely based on the theory of “abrupt climate change.” The plot of the movie is that, as a result of global warming, ocean currents that circulate water around the world shut down, heating up the tropics and cooling the North Atlantic.

    Hey Kushal,
    it's Lisa.

    Avatar!! definitely one of my favorites!
    I was really overwhelmed by the way that the director depicted the beauty of nature how they are interconnected, how they have the spirit that can connect to us and how they as a whole are a big living creature itself. It beautifully yet very sharply criticized how humans have had sacrificed the beauty for his avarice.
    Just love the movie!!!

    Hello Kushal

    I have to agree that those three movies you chose as your favorite environmental movies are great. Environmental movies play important role in making people aware of the environmental issues. I hope that awareness does not end as temporary interests, and continuously asks for efforts of people.
    I've watched all the movie you recommended except for Wall E, and I'll try the movie in my free time!

    Thank you for the great report.
