Ecological Design: Inventing The Future

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

I recently met Brian Danitz, now an attorney at Wilson, Sonsini, and formerly a cinematographer and film maker.  He loaned us a copy of his award winning movie “Ecological Design: Inventing The Future,” a film about integrating technology, nature and humans.  It describes design outlaws, starting with Buckminster Fuller, and covering architecture, ecological engineering, solar and renewable energy, and many vitally important topics.

It was released in 1994, but is very timely almost ten years after, and I recommend it.  As a documentary, it has had limited distribution, and I haven’t found many reviews, though there is one by Christine Young with links to many of the topics and people in the film.
