The Can

First in first out (FIFO) is a shelving technique used in supermarkets. Stephan must place the freshest products behind the oldest ones. Products nearing their sell-by date must be destroyed. When going to the bins in the basement, Stephan will have to face those who could still benefit from them, but who are excluded by the system. He will also have to confront who he was before getting a job. Sacha Ferbus | 2017 | 12 min. | Belgium

An old couple are living in an apartment, the man is sleeping and the woman is doing housework. The lady wants to change the fish tank’s water but it slips out of her hand and falls on the ground. They've ran out of water and there’s no water for the fish. But with the help of the man they find water for it. Saman Hosseinpuor | 2016 | 4 mins. | Islamic Republic of Iran

Forgotten but not Gone: The Pacific Fisher
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, populations of the fisher (Pekania pennanti)—a forest-dwelling member of the weasel and otter family—were in steep decline across much of its native range of northern North America. Both fur trapping and habitat loss from logging and urbanization took a heavy toll. However, once trapping bans and timber harvest restrictions were put in place, the species rebounded in many regions. Unfortunately, that trend hasn’t carried over to the West Coast of the U.S., where an isolated population of fishers, known as the Pacific fisher, continues to struggle. Scientists estimate that only 4,000 Pacific fishers remain, with just 300 left in California’s Sierra Nevada Range. These individuals now face a new and rising threat: illegal marijuana grow sites that are cropping up on public lands. Growers use poisons to protect their plants from rodents, and these chemicals are indiscriminate killers. Morgan Heim, Day's Edge Productions, BioGraphic | 2017 | 8 min. | USA

"Problems can also be opportunities" Jordi Mayals. We discovered L'estoc on a back street of Barcelona and were so impressed with the philosophy and people behind the project that we decided to spend a few days learning about the work so we could share the story of L'estoc with everybody else. Bessie Byrne | 2017 | 9 min. | Australia, Spain

Sheltered in Oak

One tree makes millions of matches, but when the time comes, only one match would be enough to burn millions of trees. Time is more powerfull than you. Mahdi Mousavi Azad | 2017 | 2 min. | Islamic Republic of Iran

Vanishing Coral
"Vanishing Coral" reveals the devastating effects of warming oceans and bleaching events within the “coral triangle” of southeast Asia, and powerfully illustrates what some dedicated scientists and environmental activists are doing to save these unique coral populations. 

"Vanishing Coral" comes at a pivotal moment, when coral reef populations are declining world-wide. Mass coral bleaching events due to elevated ocean temperatures occurred in 1998, 2002 and 2006, and coral bleaching is now expected to become an annual occurrence. The environmental costs are staggering: in 2016, one-third of the Great Barrier Reef along the eastern coast of Australia was decimated by a warm spell attributed to climate change.
Coral reefs in the Florida Keys have declined by 80% over the past three decades. Scientists warn that all Caribbean coral could disappear in the next 20 years. Considered “the canary in the coal mine” of global warming, coral reefs are the most sensitive and diverse of all marine ecosystems. The film follows the work of marine biologist and coral expert Dr. Phil Dustan, who presents powerful insights and direct, visual evidence of the year-by-year dramatic decline in the coral triangle of southeast Asia, changes which are directly tied to the burning of fossil fuels, pollution and other human behaviors. 
Photographed aboard the 100 year-old sailing vessel “Mir”, a floating headquarters for a young, international group of environmental activists, "Vanishing Coral" presents the insights and research of scientists and naturalists as they work with local Indonesian communities to protect the coral reefs."Vanishing Coral" offers an ecological alarm bell to the world, with specific suggestions on how viewers themselves can get involved and take action.  Stephen Olsson | 2017 | 26 min. | USA

          23 Californians now dead in this weeks wildfires.

          Hundreds of thousands in shelters.

          Over ten thousand burned out of their homes with only the clothes on their backs.

          Our president Trump gives us the big F.U.

              Trump calling the media THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE is the attitude of a NAZI.
              And now wants to stop the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT from paying for fire support.
              Truly a NAZI president.
              HATE his only tools.

                  Of course Trump didn't start the fire. He couldn't even stop playing video games long enough yesterday to attend a memorial to American vetrans in France. Obviously no way with his bone spurs he could get out and start these fires. Hopefully soon we'll be pissing on Trumps grave. That will be making america great.

          They eat less, don't ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don't hang out with drug using friends, don't drink or smoke,don't worry about buying the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes,don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and if they get pregnant, you can sell the results.

      No one (other than the blood thirsty mentally ill) cares about the gladiator sport anymore. It should not be funded by taxpayers, nor any part of the public education system. Lifelong injuries of children for adult entertainment is wrong.
