Force of Nature: The David Suzuki movie

David Suzuki is Canada?s pre-eminent environmentalist. An award-winning scientist, educator, activist, and broadcaster (he?s the host of the long-running CBC-TV series, The Nature of Things, now in its 51st season), Suzuki in this film is captured delivering a '?last lecture?a distillation of my life and thoughts, my legacy, what I want to say before I die." Filmed before a live audience, Suzuki articulates an urgent message: we have exhausted the limits of the biosphere and must re-think our relationship with the natural world. He delineates the strains on the interconnected web of life and offers up a blueprint for sustainability and survival. Suzuki?s talk, which the Toronto Globe and Mail has called ?easily on par with the greatest orations of the last 50 years,? is punctuated by scenes of Suzuki visiting places that shaped his development?from a Japanese-Canadian WWII internment camp and Hiroshima to a favorite fishing spot in Leamington, Ontario. Winner of the People?s Choice Award for Documentary at the 2010 Toronto Int?l Film Festival. Cleveland premiere.
