April 13, 2018 Footprint
By globetrotting through every corner of the world, Footprint provides a unique window into the real effects of population growth and consumption inequality on the world we live in and the environment. The women filmmakers offer unprecedented access to the people on the ground, who are all in their unique way challenging the status quo and making us rethink what’s really at stake. There are surprising revelations on who are the players standing in the way of solutions and those pushing for it, without losing sight of the array of possible solutions that open up when we take the time to ask this critical question: how many of us there are in the world and what can the Earth sustain if we are all to live a dignified life?
