For the Next Seven Generations (90min)


In 2004, thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers from all four corners, moved by their concern for our planet, came together at a historic gathering, where they decided to form an alliance: The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. This is their story. Four years in-the-making and shot on location in the Amazon rainforest, the mountains of Mexico, North America, and at a private meeting with the Dalai Lama in India, For the Next 7 Generations follows what happens when these wise women unite. Facing a world in crisis, they share with us their visions of healing and a call for change now, before it's too late. This film documents their unparalleled journey and timely perspectives on a timeless wisdom.

DamNation (94min)


This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.

Forever Wild (55min)


Forever Wild: Celebrating America’s Wilderness tells the tales of citizens who have decided what wilderness means to them. They have dedicated time and energy to helping protect the lands they love as wilderness.  Robert Redford, himself a strong supporter of wilderness, hosts the film. Mr. Redford’s narration,  together with original music and the moving prose of Terry Tempest Williams, read by the author, guide the viewer through an examination of America’s commitment to wilderness preservation, and the values we hold dear in protecting these wild lands.

Forever Wild educates audiences about the ever-present pressures to develop the last remnants of wild land left in America and offers viewers an opportunity  to reflect on  the importance of protecting wilderness so that our children may experience  the same wild places.

Forever Wild is a production of First Light Films. The award-winning production company creates compelling and entertaining educational films that illuminate critical environmental and social issues. KQED Presents will release the program for national broadcast beginning in September 2009.
