Within the last several years, some great eco-themed movies have swirled about in theaters and Netflix queues. Both scripted and documentary, these films have been effective at conscious-raising and spreading the word to take action to heal our wilting planet. They cover some of the bases of our eco-crisis, but this is in no way a comprehensive list. It is only a sampler platter of the fine films out there! All of these films can be viewed through an ecofeminist lens, bridging the gap between environmental issues and feminist ones. There are layers of oppression in everything from food justice to gentrification, and there is much ground to tap into and discussion to be had.
Taking its title from rapper T-Love's song, Nobody Knows My Name is about female participation of hip hop culture as MCs, DJs, breakers, and producers, despite being obscured by a recording industry that doesn't know how or care to figure out how to sell their product.
