    I received this e-mail from Stim. His new documentary "END:CIV" is done and wants to go on tour to promote it. Wanna "do" something? Bring this man to your town and give him a listen.

    Now this documentary is pretty anti-civilization and shit, but there are things to learn here, do not just throw this guys (and Derrick Jensens) ideas in the garbage. Though i know Green Press hates Derrick Jensen.

    Hey Y'all,

    My name is Franklin López and I am a filmmaker with subMedia.tv. I
    recently completed a film entitled END:CIV (http://endciv.com) inspired
    by the writings of Derrick Jensen. I recently toured Mexico with the
    film which culminated with a screening at the [email protected] space, during the
    COP16 mobilization, and will continue in the US and Canada starting in

    I am currently booking a 6 month North American tour to promote the film
    and the DVD release by PM Press. I'm putting this out there as a general
    call out to anyone who would be interested in having me come to their
    community and screen the film.

    Thanks for your time and more info on the film below.


    END:CIV examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and
    environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of
    poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. Based in part on Endgame,
    the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END:CIV asks: “If your homeland
    was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and
    air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?”

    The causes underlying the collapse of civilizations are usually traced
    to overuse of resources. As we write this, the world is reeling from
    economic chaos, peak oil, climate change, environmental degradation, and
    political turmoil. Every day, the headlines re-hash stories of scandal
    and betrayal of the public trust. We don’t have to make outraged demands
    for the end of the current global system — it seems to be coming apart

    But acts of courage, compassion and altruism abound, even in the most
    damaged places. By documenting the resilience of the people hit hardest
    by war and repression, and the heroism of those coming forward to
    confront the crisis head-on, END:CIV illuminates a way out of this
    all-consuming madness and into a saner future.

    Backed by Jensen’s narrative, the film calls on us to act as if we truly
    love this land. The film trips along at a brisk pace, using music,
    archival footage, motion graphics, animation, slapstick and satire to
    deconstruct the global economic system, even as it implodes around us.
    END:CIV illustrates first-person stories of sacrifice and heroism with
    intense, emotionally-charged images that match Jensen’s poetic and
    intuitive approach. Scenes shot in the back country provide interludes
    of breathtaking natural beauty alongside clearcut evidence of horrific
    but commonplace destruction.

    END:CIV features interviews with Paul Watson, Waziyatawin, Gord Hill,
    Michael Becker, Peter Gelderloos, Lierre Keith, James Howard Kunstler,
    Stephanie McMillan, Qwatsinas, Rod Coronado, John Zerzan and more.

    Franklin López will be touring with END:CIV in 2011.
