Ethos: A Time For Change

from Multimedia Library Collection:
Environmental Film Profiles (videos)

McGrain, Pete. Ethos. Burbank: Cinema Libre Studio, 2011. HD, 68 min.

Hosted by actor and activist Woody Harrelson, Ethos: A Time For Change lifts the lid on a Pandora’s Box of systemic issues that guarantee failure in every aspect of our lives, from the environment to our democracy and our own personal liberty. From conflicts of interest in politics to unregulated corporate power, to a military industrial complex that just about owns our government. We cannot change our system until we know how it works and this film, with interviews from some of today’s leading thinkers, will show how we can live in peace and justice in a clean environment and make meaningful and sustainable change.
