#DoSomething.mp4

My short film intends to confront people with the fact that our words alone are not enough to make a positive change on earth if they are not accompanied by awareness and actions. It also attempts to criticise the indiscriminate consumption of things we don’t need, which generates a lot of pollution.

A Pre-loved Christmas

The film is about the problem of over-consumption as a result of our throw-away society.

History can provide us with useful lessons. While there has been expansion of knowledge, and progress in many ways, in others we are not so different than past variations. Despite how far we’ve come, it could be suggested that in some aspects, we are regressing. In this film a student queries the climate […]
