sctv-nomis-2014-logo- Best 'Green' filmWe are delighted to confirm this film was nominated by Stroud Community TV viewers for Stroud Community TV Best Green film Awards 2014. See details at: https://stroudcommunity.tv/awards-2014/

This is a new update of an earlier film. This 7 minute film tracks down the reasons for how we can be ‘in drought’ as well as ‘flooded’ at the same place and time. Interviewing Osman Goring at Coaley Mill, Gloucestershire it gives us an in-depth view into this phenomena which is occurring more and more right on our doorsteps in Great Britain. Turns out – the main factors contributing to this ‘natural disaster’ are… man-made!

Film maker Uscha Pohl has made this and it plays on the YouTube channel for VERY Magazine.

    Informative film that explains simply and accessibly how we can address this massive contradiction in how we destroy and damage our environment. Its viewpoint that the powers that be are failing us as more chemicals are used as drought and flood alerts collide! A hopeful constructive film that offers insights to a serious problem.
    Well constructed with effective complimentary use of music and visuals delivering a crucial message.
