Summary
Renewal is the first feature-length documentary film to capture the vitality and diversity of today's religious-environmental activists. From within their Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim traditions, Americans are becoming caretakers of the Earth. With great courage, these women and men are re-examining what it means to be human and how we live on this planet. Their stories of combating global warming and the devastation of mountaintop removal, of promoting food security, environmental justice, recycling, and land preservation, and of teaching love and respect for life on Earth are the heart of Renewal. (To access each of Renewals' eight individual stories, visit "Renewal: Enhanced Stories" - also available on Kanopy Streaming) "The religious environmental movement is potentially key to dealing with the greatest problem humans have ever faced, and it has never been captured with more breadth and force than in Renewal. I hope this movie is screened in church basements and synagogue social halls across the country, and that it moves many more people of faith off the fence and into action."- Bill McKibben "I watched this film with admiration and hope millions of others will have the chance to see it. You will be stirred to discover people of different faiths who are engaged in an exhilarating stewardship of the earth that offers our best chance to yet save creation."- Bill Moyers "I feel like our congregation was jump-started for more eco-commitment simply from seeing the video."- Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale, Reformed Church of Highland Park, NJ "Renewal is a path breaking film that gives us for the first time stories of the emerging movement of religious environmentalism across the United States. Here we witness the inspiration of religious ideas in practice for the healing of the Earth. Such a film is invaluable for religious leaders and laity alike. Moreover, it will renew those working on behalf of future generations." - Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, Forum on Religion and Ecology, Yale University "Renewal, Marty Ostrow and Terry Kay Rockefeller's latest documentary, offers a comprehensive overview of what different religions are doing about the awesome devastation of Earth's life systems now taking place. The filmmakers' vision of the problem and understanding of viable solutions show rare depth of perception and are matched only by their sense of the urgency of action if we are to realize our hopes for the future." - Thomas Berry
