RENEWAL (2008), by Marty Ostrow and Terry Kay Rockefeller – presents different stories about America’s growing faith-based environmental movement.
Each story is set in a different faith tradition and each story addresses a different environmental concern. Offering a profound message of hope, “Renewal” shows people inspired by their diverse spiritual and faith convictions, being called to re-examine what it means to be human and how we live on this planet.
Crime Against Creation (11:20 min) – Evangelicals bear witness to mountaintop removal and the destruction of Appalachia.
Food for Faith (14:50 min) – Muslim tradition and charity forge bonds between urban communities and sustainable farms in Illinois.
Compassion in Action (11:10 min) – Green Sangha, a Buddhist community in northern California, leads a campaign to save trees.
Eco-Justice (11:30 min) – is about an African American community in coastal Mississippi fighting back against environmental contamination that has been made worse by Hurricane Katrina.
After our screening we’ll have a panel discussion facilitated by climate activists Nils and Yiming of the DC Citizens Climate Lobby.

BloomScreen Indie Film Night – is a weekly series of independent and foreign films, accompanied by discussions with filmmakers and other experts. Our goal is to provide a unique experience that a local Cineplex cannot – an opportunity for discussion that allows a better understanding of issues affecting our communities and our world.
