Inhabitants

An Indigenous Perspective


Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective is a feature-length documentary that follows five North American tribes restoring their ancient relationships with the land while adapting to today’s climate crisis.

The film travels across diverse bioregions of North America, from deserts and coastlines, to forests, mountains, and prairies, highlighting the dramatic effects of climate change and stories of indigenous land stewardship practices, which continue to be resilient in the face of a changing climate. The film focuses on five stories: the return of prescribed fire practices by the Karuk Tribe in California; the restoration of buffalo on the Blackfeet reservation in Montana; sustained traditions of Hopi dryland farming in Arizona; sustainable forestry on the Menominee reservation in Wisconsin; and the revival of native Hawaiian food forests in Hawaii.

Although these stories are not connected geographically, and only represent a small portion of the many diverse indigenous communities leading efforts to maintain their cultural practices and identity, they all share the common dimensions of “traditional knowledges.” According to Guidelines for Considering Traditional Knowledges in Climate Change Initiatives,"[traditional knowledges] broadly refer to indigenous communities’ ways of knowing that both guide and result from their communities members’ close relationships with and responsibilities towards the landscapes, waterscapes, plants, and animals that are vital to the flourishing of indigenous cultures."

Climate change poses an immediate threat to Indigenous Peoples’ health, well-being and ways of life. Tribal nations are on the front lines of confronting climate change, including increased frequency and intensity of wildfires, higher temperatures, ecosystem changes, ocean acidification, forest loss, and habitat damage. Climate change also raises questions about what will become of spiritually and culturally significant ecosystem services that are essential to maintaining many tribes’ identities. Indigenous communities are disproportionately harmed by the changing climate as they depend more on natural resources than the US population as a whole. Negative impacts include threats to traditional foods such as fish and crops which have provided sustenance as well as cultural, economic, medicinal, and community health for countless generations.

Emerging threats have galvanized a concerted effort by several tribes to forge ahead with climate-change adaptation strategies. They are leading the way guided by indigenous traditions and are quickly adapting to and even directly counteracting the shifting climate. Examples like the Hopi dry land farming techniques show how to deal with extremely arid and hot weather; the raising of Native Bison on the prairie lands of the Midwest improves carbon sequestration while removing the need for feedstocks; and forest fire management that is being guided by native forestry practices are just a few of the stories that give insight into how much wisdom and importance the indigenous land use practices reflect; and how crucial it is that their story is heard. The indigenous land management practices in the forests, deserts, prairies and coastlines of North America have much to offer to the current conversation surrounding climate adaptation and mitigation.

The First Peoples are estimated to have lived in North America for 15,000 years. In a few short centuries Native Americans have had most of their population systematically erased, almost all their land taken, and also been forced to deal with the disastrous effects of industrialization on their remaining resources. Tribal communities have proven to be remarkably resilient, surviving in some of the most extreme environments and having endured very aggressive marginalization. We can now create a platform for helping these marginalized people share their wisdom about how to live in these lands and how their history and tradition can inform and guide us. This documentary is an effort to give Native Americans an opportunity to share their stories of resilience and wisdom in the face of extreme climatic stress. We as a society can listen and learn from these stories of time tested land use practices. Now is the moment to support Native peoples in becoming leading voices on how to design, create, imagine and live in a more sustainable and resilient world.
This past fall we had the honor of documenting the prescribed fire traditions of the Karuk Tribe in Northern California and the sustainable forestry operations of the Menominee Tribe in Wisconsin. These stories are being woven into a feature length documentary Inhabitants due out in 2020. Folks have been asking a lot about the Woodlanders series and although I took a break last summer to focus on this feature film we are ramping up for a new season of short films starting in the Pacific Northwest next month. Thanks for your patience and support. — Costa Boutsikaris (2019)

#Woodlanders is an online film series that seeks to document the work of people who care for and depend on forests for their livelihood and well-being throughout the world.

Even among today’s progressive movements of local economy and food systems, the vast global knowledge of forest livelihoods and economies are mostly undervalued and undocumented. From woodcraft and nut tree cultures of ancient Europe, to mushroom and forest medicines of Asia, there many fascinating ways of creating sustainable economies from the forests while maintaining their ecological health and complexity. While filming Inhabit - A Permaculture Perspective I fell in love with woodland cultures and felt called to research further. Over the past year I began to create an accessible archive of these stories and I hope to share this inspiring world with you. Sustainable relationships with forests regenerate and protect these wild places while also offering livelihoods to humans. Each episode will focus on a person or culture who has a sustainable relationship and/or livelihood with a forest. Join me on the journey and learn how much forests can offer. — Costa Boutsikaris

#Frage #Hilfe #Film

Mir fiel gerade eine Fernsehserie oder Spielfilm (Fiction/Scifi) ein den ich mal in den (mitte?) achtzigern im Fernsehen gesehen habe.
Die Handlung beginnt damit das ein Mann an einem internationalen Flughafen in D ankommt. Bei der Passkontrolle behauptet der Computer das er bereits verstorben sei. Daraufhin wird er natürlich erst mal festgenommen. Tja, und da der Computer keine Fehler macht (machen kann/darf) bekommt der Verlauf ein urplötzliche Wendung.
Konnte den Film bei einer Websuche nicht finden.
Jemand 'ne Ahnung?

Walked outside to walk the dog first thing this morning, and stepped into the 1920s. Ye olde cars and costumes. Turns out they're filming a scene outside my building! Vindication Swim, an #indie #film about the first woman to swim across the English Channel.

So it turns out that this is
The most ambitions and exciting indie-film project ever attempted. From the UK’s Youngest Film Director, Elliott Hasler (“the next Spielberg”), comes the inspirational true story of the first English woman to swim the Channel.

Swimmer Mercedes Gleitze fights, along with her troubled coach Harold Best, to overcome both the cold waters of the English Channel and the patriarchal society of 1920s England. However, after a rival comes forward claiming to have accomplished the same feat, Gleitze is forced into a fight to retain her record and her legacy. Currently shooting…

Bananas!*


Bananas!* is a suspenseful court room drama that examines the intricacies and injustices of the global politics of food.

Focusing on a landmark and highly controversial legal case pitting a dozen Nicaraguan banana plantation workers against Dole Food Corporation, Bananas!* uncovers the alleged usage of a banned pesticide and its probable link to generations of sterilized workers.

Central to both the film and case is Juan “Accidentes” Dominguez, a Los Angeles-based personal injury attorney who, although iconic within the Latino community for his ubiquitous billboard ads, is unquestionably facing the biggest case and challenge of his career.

At stake in the classic David vs. Goliath story are the futures of generations of workers and their families, as well as the culture of global, multinational business. If successful, the case could rock the economic foundations of Dole, and would open the US courts to other global victims, representing a new day in international justice.

Strange Days Indeed!


Or weird scenes inside the gold mine, or what a long, strange trip it's been... All good, fitting, and great lyrics and songs.
But my own day brings me "here" to this song. And it definitely fits. Story below. This wonderful song (from "cool film") first...

## Across the Universe

My day began with a tour of one of Hawaii's largest coffee farms, and lectures by some of the producers, agriculture experts, etc.
Zoom. (What else? I wish I could be in Hawai'i now, in general but also it is the only U.S. state without climbing COVID-19 rates.)

Moving on I spent 1/2 hour in a socially-distanced line outside a big NY food store (Fairway - TJ's was even worse), I suppose a combination of food-buying for next week's big (but restricted) holiday, Thanksgiving. Note: plenty of turkeys were available! Paper goods not so much. (Remember the complete absence of toilet paper? Less so now, and gloves & masks at the cash register.)

Finally home again, wash wash, and a bit of music threading "here", a lot of it 70's/80's and a theme of jukeboxes.

Saturday night - in - and by chance (is anything?) I turned on the TV at the beginning of a 1998 movie, Pleasantville.
Produced by Mr. & Mrs. Andy Samberg, it was an early effort at digitalizing film and was mostly in black & white, with discreet people and things (e.g., flowers), colorized. My take: Like Wizard of Oz, the glory of color was celebrated, and like Yellow Submarine, there were the b&w crowd becoming a mob angry at the cool colored invaders from the future, disturbing normalcy. Add a pinch of Twilight Zone, and this feels like a non-drug-induced "trip". Complete with juke box too (focus of the music thread earlier). Whew.

All that to say, I was in awe at the closing credits where the sound track was The Beatles' Across the Universe (Jai Guru Deva), which was just so perfect. And the singer too. Who was she? I'd been enjoying and riffing on some sultry-voiced Female vocalists like Amy Winehouse and Winona Oak. So, I wanted to know, and buried deep in the credits I got the answer: Fiona Apple!

So here it is, the whole song, and with some key references to that trippy, fun, very irreverent movie. Full circle. Strange day... Enjoy.

Stay Safe!

Amazing Short Film on Old Time Radio Sound Effects: "Back of the Mike" (1938)


Insider's view of the 1930s radio studio showing the production of dramatic sound effects.

A boy lies on his bed (wearing a white shirt and a necktie), listening to a radio western. We see the images the radio creates in his mind, then we cut to the studio, where we see that this whole fantasy world is created at a frantic pace by announcers in three-piece suits and sound-effects technicians operating incredibly complicated jury-rigged devices. We get to see such things as one guy doing both voices in a conversation, an adult do a very convincing impersonation of a child's voice, guys playing cowboys impersonating the sound of conversing while riding by playing "horsie" while reading their lines, and all the weird stuff used to make sound effects. Since this is a Jam Handy picture, the good guys catch the bad guys in the end because the good guys are in a Chevrolet and the bad guys are only on horses.

A real gem of a short. Watch it the second time with your eyes closed.

Producer: Handy (Jam) Organization
Sponsor: Chevrolet Division, General Motors Corporation

Apple iPhone 12 With 5G Could Help Filmmaking "Change Dramatically" | Hollywood Reporter

The newly announced iPhone 12 Pro includes tools "that used to cost us tens of thousands of dollars."
More of the movies you watch in the future will be shot on iPhone. I'm hoping that Apple comes up with a new video format to match their ProRaw stills format, and include the ability to set up colour grading in-camera even before starting the shoot. Videographers are already using FiLMiC Pro to shoot LOG footage and LumaFusion to edit and colour-grade with LOG-based LUTs. Given the power of the new A14 chip, I'd like to see a version of Final Cut Pro X (and third-party video editing suites like DaVinci Resolve) available for the iPhone and iPad, and not just for the Pro versions of those devices.
