The Green Patriarch

As we humans drive our fragile planet toward ecocide, what force can stop us, change our behavior? Can religion, espousing an environmental ethic, change how we act? The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the first major Christian leader to make the environment a moral imperative, is a man on a spiritual mission to save our earth, save God's Creation. This intimate portrait of the 270th successor to the Apostle Andrew follows him from the Patriarchate in Istanbul to the burning rainforests of the Amazon to the melting glaciers of the Arctic where he gathered representatives of the world's religions in a silent prayer for the planet. © 2009 Becket Films and used with permission (http://www.becketfilms.com).

The Arctic: The Consequences of Human Folly

The Ecumenical Patriarch convened the seventh symposium in the Arctic where the most rapid and alarming environmental changes are taking place. Bringing together religious leaders, scientific experts, environmentalists, local leaders, and the media, the participants saw first hand the melting of the millennial glaciers and heard testimony to the devastating impact of toxic pollution on the human and animal population, pollution brought by wind and sea currents from the industrial south. A silent prayer bringing together representatives of the world's religions and a child from each continent, provided a moving plea to stem the tide of humanity's self destruction. © 2009 Becket Films and used with permission (http://www.becketfilms.com).

Amazon: The End of Infinity

Outsiders first viewed the Amazon Basin as a source of infinite wealth, then infinite space, and today infinite catastrophe. The Symposium sought to explore a fourth infinity, man's infinite capacity to change. The goal of this, the sixth symposium, was to first accurately assess reality in the Amazon and the global impact of deforestation, and then, more importantly, propose sustainable solutions to preserve the forest for the planet's future generations. The dilemma posed was how is it possible to both grow the economy and preserve the environment. The voyage's more than two hundred participants, including indigenous leaders and government officials, visited areas of destruction as well as sustainable communities. A high point was a ceremony by an indigenous leader and the Ecumenical Patriarch blessing the rivers. © 2009 Becket Films and used with permission (http://www.becketfilms.com).
