Los Angeles: “The Green Warriors of Chandi’s Fortress”, a zero-budget film shot on recycled tapes using a handy cam about an environmental campaign of Chandigarh, will form part of international “Green Lifestyle Film Festival” in University of California—Los Angeles (USA) from March 19-21.
Made by Dr. Gaurav Chabra with one-man crew, this film claimed to save the city’s natural heritage from administration’s “insensitive” plans. “This film is a testament of how powerful a small band of people can be…”, its description says.
Founded in 2006, this Festival is a celebration of film makers who dedicate their talents, income and energy to examining what sustainability really means. It was founded with the idea that film could be used to create change for the greater good. An inner transformation can alter the course of our planet, according to its official website.
Commending organizers for their reverence for the Laws of Nature, acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, urged other countries to also organize such environmental friendly and nature respecting film festivals. Ancient Hindu scriptures, especially Atharva-Veda, were highly respectful of mother nature, Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation, added.
Called “a sustainable film festival”, its celebrity hosts this year include actresses Joanne Rose and Debra Wilson Skelton. Topics the films explore include: how we birth our young, how we raise children, the construction and design of our homes, illness, our movement around the Earth and how this is in reflected in how we feed ourselves, how we treat each other and the impact of our consumerist behavior on the planet. It will also launch a Vegetarian Food Drive in USA.
