King of Dinoland

This film allows me to reminisce about my childhood growing up in the desert.

Abe’s personality is very adventurous and childlike, and I think his environment really brings that out of him. When you grow up in a desert (whether physically or metaphorically), you learn to make something out of nothing. Nature is very much a part of your life. Abe’s love for his art is infectious. Whether he makes money from his craft or not, the experience he gets from crafting his wooden pieces is therapeutic. The film was a wild ride, and I thoroughly enjoyed it

Kiss The Ground

Though this film is not short (at nearly two hours), I think you should watch it. The theme is soil science and regenerative agriculture. The film does a great job of breaking down soil science and explaining how climate change works. Our environment is not designed to be mass-produced. Yet, we live in a world of mass production and excess, with the final result being: us all suffering in the long term for a day’s short-term gains.  

Woody Harrelson narrates the film.
