In 1991, arborist David Milarch had a near-death experience that inspired a personal quest to reforest our planet. He would harvest the genetics of the world’s oldest trees, initiate tree-planting efforts to combat climate change, and help restore the planet’s health. Moving the Giants tells David’s story, as he helps California coastal redwoods migrate northward to survive climate changes that threaten their current habitat. His is one path to promote “treequestration,” a mass movement to use one of nature’s most prolific methods to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the amount of future climate change.

Bikes vs. Cars

88 min

Filmmaker: Fredrik Gertten

Bikes vs. Cars depicts a global crisis where climate is changing; resource depletion is real and cities are sprawling with more and more surface consumed by the car. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the auto industry invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In Bikes vs. Cars we meet activists who are fighting for better cities and who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing numbers of bicyclists being killed in traffic.
