OZONE HOLE: HOW WE SAVED THE PLANET (United Kingdom) 55:55 minutes
Directed and written by Jamie Lochhead | Produced by David Dugan, Charlotte Hunt-Grubbe.    

The remarkable story of the hole in the ozone layer - and how we managed to fix it. The first time we faced a catastrophic, man-made threat to the planet’s environment, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher took action. The world followed their lead and came together to sign the Montreal Protocol - the first global treaty to reduce pollution. It worked. Today, the ozone hole is showing signs of recovery. As climate change begins to feel like an impossible challenge, this story - told by the folks who persuaded Maggie and Ronnie to regulate industry - offers a message of hope.

WHY IS BLUE SO RARE IN NATURE? | IT’S OKAY TO BE SMART (United States) 8:26 minutes
Directed by Joe Nicolosi | Produced by Jordan Husmann, Stephanie Noone, Amanda Fox | Written by Joe Hanson, Ph.D

You might have heard that there’s no such thing as blue in nature. Well, that’s not really true - there are blue rocks, blue sky, and blue water, but blue animals are few and far between. In this video, we’ll look at butterflies to help us learn how living things appear blue, and why this beautiful hue is so rare in nature.

SUSTAINABLE NATION (Israel) 60 minutes - English, Hebrew, Other (subtitles)
Directed by Micah Smith | Produced by Raphael Shore, Rebecca Shore | Written by Micah Smith, Rebecca Shore, Fernanda Rossi, Baruch Goldberg

Sustainable Nation follows three innovators who are taking valuable lessons learned from Israel’s water shortage to bring sustainable water solutions to an increasingly thirsty planet. This film highlights the relationship between food, energy and water, and how solving these enormous challenges can help free the world, from life-threatening poverty, illness and lack of opportunity.
