The film follows activist Mark Angelo as he visits various countries–India, China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and locales in Africa–where tanneries and textile factories use toxic chemicals in garment production and pour the waste into rivers, resulting in severe pollution. Angelo talks with owners and workers who usually deny that processes they employ are doing ecological damnage, although the visual evidence indicates otherwise, as do witnesses who testify to the harmful impact that the pollutants have had on nearby residents, including children. Riverblue also includes interviews with some designers who were instrumental in concocting the chemical cocktails used in producing the clothing (and now regret the result), researchers who are devising safer (if more expensive) means of achieving the same effects and supporters of a Greenpeace campaign to detoxify polluted rivers. The question the film inevitably raises is whether consumers will be willing to spend more for clothes in order to protect the environment–laying down a challenge to viewers to join a crusade to save the planet.

Presenting both the full-length version and a 52-minute abridgement, this is recommended.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv id=\"pageContainer1\" data-page-number=\"1\" data-loaded=\"true\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv data-canvas-width=\"745.4456470588237\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"page\" title=\"Page 2\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"layoutArea\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"column\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cstyle type=\"text\/css\"\u003e\u003c!--\ntd {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}\n--\u003e\u003c\/style\u003e"}

He attempts to block boats headed to the ice caps to drill for oil, to stop the delivery of coal to power plants, even stands in front of gas stations with signs declaring them to be evil. His actions land him in jail on more than one occasion, with one especially significant event resulting in a felony charge and a criminal trial. Climate change can be an uncomfortable topic to discuss, regardless of your personal feelings on the issue. Scientific data, some of which is included in the film, continually substantiates the claim that climate change is happening and human actions are a contributing factor. Yet, many feel helpless when it comes to stopping it. Ward and the film show how one person can act. Overall this film is recommended. It creates an urgency for the viewer, for a crisis that may impact all of humankind, if not dealt with properly. The film is deeply personal, passionate, and could very well be inspiring to many. Recommended.\" \u003cem\u003e- Educational Media Reviews Online, Erin Rowley, University at Buffalo Libraries\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\"RECOMMENDED\" - \u003cem\u003eVideo Librarian\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s3\"\u003eThe Reluctant Radical is the most striking environmental documentary I’ve seen to date—and I have seen plenty. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s4\"\u003eIt is an absolute must-see.” \u003cem\u003e- \u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003eD.

He attempts to block boats headed to the ice caps to drill for oil, to stop the delivery of coal to power plants, even stands in front of gas stations with signs declaring them to be evil. His actions land him in jail on more than one occasion, with one especially significant event resulting in a felony charge and a criminal trial. Climate change can be an uncomfortable topic to discuss, regardless of your personal feelings on the issue. Scientific data, some of which is included in the film, continually substantiates the claim that climate change is happening and human actions are a contributing factor. Yet, many feel helpless when it comes to stopping it. Ward and the film show how one person can act. Overall this film is recommended. It creates an urgency for the viewer, for a crisis that may impact all of humankind, if not dealt with properly. The film is deeply personal, passionate, and could very well be inspiring to many. Recommended.\" \u003cem\u003e- Educational Media Reviews Online, Erin Rowley, University at Buffalo Libraries\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\"RECOMMENDED\" - \u003cem\u003eVideo Librarian\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s3\"\u003eThe Reluctant Radical is the most striking environmental documentary I’ve seen to date—and I have seen plenty. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s4\"\u003eIt is an absolute must-see.” \u003cem\u003e- \u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003eD.

But now, against all odds, in the empty lots, in the old factory yards, and the sad, sagging blocks of company housing, seeds of change are taking root. With the most vacant lots in the country, citizens are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. Dedicated citizens have started an urban environmental movement that is transforming not just a city after its collapse, but also America at the end of its industrial age. Urban Roots shows dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally-grown, sustainably farmed food in a city where people – as in much of the county – have found themselves cut off from real food and limited to the lifeless offerings of fast food chains, mini-marts, and grocery stores stocked with processed food from thousands of miles away. The people of Detroit have taken on the enormous task of changing this for themselves, and to understand their story is to understand how we can change it for us all. Urban Roots is a story that reveals that the best in us can prevail in the most difficult of times; and in the most difficult of places, new hope emerges.  This growing movement of urban farmers is changing the way people think about food—and life in the “D”. It took men like Henry Ford, William Durant, and Lee Iacocca to build this city, but it’s taken a bunch of strong willed self-taught urban farmers to save it.\u003c\/span\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/Urban-Roots-Shep-fnl_large.jpg?v=1533834404\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eShepard Fairey designed \"Urban Roots\" Print which promoted farm programs in schools during and after the film's release.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSELECTED SCREENINGS \u0026amp; EVENTS\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOfficial Selection Reykjavik International Film Festival (RIFF) World Premier\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Eco Focus Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Planet in Focus Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Imagesante Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection San Francisco Green Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection One World Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Food for Thought Film Series\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Dig In!

In addition to giving background on Motor City’s rise and fall, and introducing viewers to the folks behind a handful of urban farms across town, the film digs into important topics like the racial implications of gardening. Despite its negative associations with slavery, the film argues, working the land can be a powerful vehicle of self-determination and empowerment for Black Americans — especially in a long-neglected city like Detroit, where residents have learned the hard way not to expect change from above.”  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cb\u003e- Grist\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003e“You may have heard about Detroit’s urban farming movement, but the documentary Urban Roots brings it alive by getting down in the furrows with the growers who are turning the city’s vacant lots into fields of abundance.” - \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cb\u003eUtne Reader\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003e“\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eThe sense that emerges from all these voices is one of Detroit agriculture as a complex social ecosystem, growing and developing in a way that is both interdependent and organic as the produce it brings to bear. This individualist, under-the-radar movement — small in acreage but ever-widening in scope and unparalleled in heart — is sowing new hope for Detroit, and by extension, a world full of dying industry and rising transportation costs. Urban Roots leaves no stone unturned, including the controversy over Hantz Farms, a larger-scale operation with an eye on being the first big investor to widen the gap created by the early pioneers.”  - \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cb\u003eKnight Foundation\u003c\/b\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.collectiveeye.org\/pages\/screenings\"\u003eHost a Screening and Book the Filmmaker at your Event\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv id=\"pageContainer1\" data-page-number=\"1\" data-loaded=\"true\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv data-canvas-width=\"745.4456470588237\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"page\" title=\"Page 2\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"layoutArea\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"column\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2018-06-18T13:52:29-07:00","created_at":"2018-06-14T14:03:58-07:00","vendor":"Tree Media","type":"DVD","tags":[],"price":5000,"price_min":5000,"price_max":45000,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":12225211826281,"title":"University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","option1":"University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"UBR-U","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Urban Roots -

But now, against all odds, in the empty lots, in the old factory yards, and the sad, sagging blocks of company housing, seeds of change are taking root. With the most vacant lots in the country, citizens are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. Dedicated citizens have started an urban environmental movement that is transforming not just a city after its collapse, but also America at the end of its industrial age. Urban Roots shows dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally-grown, sustainably farmed food in a city where people – as in much of the county – have found themselves cut off from real food and limited to the lifeless offerings of fast food chains, mini-marts, and grocery stores stocked with processed food from thousands of miles away. The people of Detroit have taken on the enormous task of changing this for themselves, and to understand their story is to understand how we can change it for us all. Urban Roots is a story that reveals that the best in us can prevail in the most difficult of times; and in the most difficult of places, new hope emerges.  This growing movement of urban farmers is changing the way people think about food—and life in the “D”. It took men like Henry Ford, William Durant, and Lee Iacocca to build this city, but it’s taken a bunch of strong willed self-taught urban farmers to save it.\u003c\/span\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/Urban-Roots-Shep-fnl_large.jpg?v=1533834404\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eShepard Fairey designed \"Urban Roots\" Print which promoted farm programs in schools during and after the film's release.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSELECTED SCREENINGS \u0026amp; EVENTS\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOfficial Selection Reykjavik International Film Festival (RIFF) World Premier\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Eco Focus Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Planet in Focus Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Imagesante Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection San Francisco Green Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection One World Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Food for Thought Film Series\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Dig In!
