Feed the Green: Feminist Voices for the Earth
A film by Jane Caputi, Produced by Susan Rosenkranz
US, 2015, 37 minutes, Color, DVD
Order No. W161186
FEED THE GREEN: FEMINIST VOICES FOR THE EARTH challenges the cultural imagination surrounding the destruction of the environment and its impact on femicide and genocide. This informative documentary, by Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies professor and scholar Jane Caputi, highlights an active global resistance movement and an alternative imagery communicating resistant green consciousness.

FEED THE GREEN features a variety of feminist thinkers, including ecological and social justice advocates Vandana Shiva, Starhawk and Andrea Smith, ecosexual activists Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens; ecofeminist theorist and disability rights activist Ynestra King, poet Camille Dungy, scholars and bloggers Janell Hobson and Jill Schneiderman and grass roots activist La Loba Loca. Their voices are powerfully juxtaposed with images from popular culture, including advertising, myth, art, and the news, pointing to the ways that an environmentally destructive worldview is embedded in popular discourses, both contemporary and historical.

Discussions include the parallels between menís violence against women and violence against Earth, the disastrous and continuing impacts of European colonization, and the ways that the ill effects of environmental damage are felt disproportionately by those who face racial and socioeconomic inequalities. Required viewing for Womenís and Environmental Studies as well as Pop Culture.



QUOTES

    "Using telling and often beautiful imagery and astute commentary from many feminist leaders, the film persuasively argues that abuse of women and other oppressed groups goes hand in hand with abuse of the planet."
    Kathy Rudy, PhD, Professor
    Womenís Studies, Duke University

    "Jane Caputiís intersectional film brings together a range of environmental feminist voices, exposing the everyday worldview responsible for the widespread and willful destruction of nature. Weaving those voices with images both past present, both common and from the margins, Caputi skillfully summons a green consciousness already in the making."
    Suzanne Kelly, PhD
