A Quiet Revolution

July 2002 | 30 minutes
Directed by: Cory Taylor
A 30-minute film featuring three dramatic case studies of how individuals in India, Slovakia and Kenya have contributed to solving local environmental problems. Narrated by Meryl Streep, and featuring interviews with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and other experts, the film's primary message is that even one person's action can make a dramatic difference. This prize-winning film was produced by the Earth Council in cooperation with UNDP and UNEP, and supported by Soka Gakkai International (SGI).

“A Quiet Revolution” introduces villagers in India restoring ancient traditions of rainwater conservation, citizens in Slovakia tackling chemical pollution and profiles the achievements of Wangari Maathai who started the Green Belt Movement and initiated a program through which women in Kenya have planted over 30 million trees and regained control over their lives. The film urges individuals to take up the challenge of becoming active protagonists in the struggle to create a peaceful, sustainable world.
