END:CIV is a film that 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?" END:CIV is currently in production....

A quick update on the production of END:CIV. (http://endciv.com/) During the months of January and February we were busy assisting the Vancouver Media Co-op (http://vancouver.mediacoop.ca/) with coverage of the anti-olympic protests in Vancouver. I am happy to say that yesterday we resumed production of END:CIV. We successfully shot a skit to illustrate Premise 3 of Derrick Jensen’s Endgame. (http://www.endgamethebook.org/Excerpts/1-Premises.htm)Our goal is to complete END:CIV by September and take the film on the road to 30-40 cities in North America.
This weekend we head to Edmonton where we’ll be taping a three day workshop called Deep Green Resistance (http://www.derrickjensen.org/dgr.html) hosted by Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith and Aric McBay and it focuses on building a culture resistance. We hope to use pieces of this on END:CIV and publish the best parts online. There are still spots left for this so if you are in Edmonton or don’t mind traveling there, E-mail lierrekeith@yahoo.com and let her know your name, address and phone number and she’ll give you the deets.
Also, word has it that the Earth First! Journal ran a story on END:CIV. Has anyone seen a copy?
Finally we are continually looking for funding and also venues to show END:CIV when its completed, so feel free to send us email with fund raising ideas and contacts to friendly screening rooms.
All for now
