Radically simple
"In Radically simple, we join engineer and author Jim Merkel as he presents his views on sustainable living in public presentations and workshops at his home. These meetings, which revolve around discussion on global economics and resource consumption, show Merkel leading by example. He demonstrates that a radically simple lifestyle-while at times intimidating-is not only possible but extremely satisfying."-- Container.

Uncommon curiosity : at home and in nature with Bernd Heinrich
This film follows Bernd Heinrich, one of the world's most insightful and original biologists, over the course of a year as he reflects on his past and shares his ideas about nature, science, art, beauty, and writing. Heinrich has been both a Guggenheim Fellow and a Harvard Fellow, and has been awarded two honorary doctorates. Considered by many to be today's finest naturalist author, Heinrich has written 18 books on various aspects of the natural world and published numerous scholarly papers, professional book reviews, book chapters, and articles for magazines and newspapers as diverse as the New York Times, Outside, and Runners World. In addition to his scholarly work he is a world-class ultramarathoner currently holding a U.S. 100-mile track record. The film doesn't just re-examine ground Heinrich has already covered in his writings but is a unique record of a year in nature with one of the preeminent naturalists of our time. The film concludes with Heinrich making the case for why biology matters and how it can help humans better understand their place in nature. One of the best hopes for the restoration of our damaged earth lies in a mass awakening of humanity to the wonder and beauty of this creation and an appreciation of our place within it. Heinrich, with his profound love of nature, penetrating mind and gift for conveying his insights, is an inspiring figure offering us a way back to a nature we must once again know and love. -- www.jancannonfilms.com
