Alongside the discovery that clams in the Baltic Sea are belching out methane like cows and the evidence that CO2 in the atmosphere in 2016 rose to a level not seen in 800,000 years, David Attenborough shows us more of nature’s wonders on TV. At least we’ll have a documentary record for future generations, if not the actual wonders themselves….
I was going to make this week about climate change but I had difficulty finding enough that weren’t simply depressing documentaries, so we’ll broaden it out to nature in general to allow in some more uplifting, even celebratory, films. Having said that, I’ll go for a climate-related one, Beasts of the Southern Wild. It’s a tad overdone but still has some wonderful visuals and a fantastic child lead played by Quvenzhané Wallis.
What films celebrating/hating/being desperately concerned about nature would you recommend?
