“Two out of three bites of food we eat are pollinated by bees,” says a man in this charming production by Phoenix Film, set in the United Arab Emirates, that captures via the voices of local women, men and youth their passion to build a sustainable society that respects gender and the natural world.
2. Greener Living Film Award Category Winner: Bad Blood
The theme of a poacher turned gamekeeper is an evergreen theme. But this riveting film by Vice News, narrating the personal guilt of a reformed rhino killer, was special: not least because such films come from Africa, but this was from the Indian border in Assam.
