Earth and the American Dream

This sobering, disturbing and moving film tells the history of the Unites States of America from the environment's point of view. It is the story of a peope who 'discovered' a new world and conquered it, who loved the land and lost it - the disquieting story of the American Dream and the considerable price that was paid to make that dream come true. 'An astonishingly beautiful and important film.' - Mercury News.
