(IN POST-PRODUCTION) A long sea odyssey in a sailboat is no minor feat, especially during a global pandemic. For Tripp Brower, what started as an attempted circumnavigation of the globe became an eye-opening education through the personal stories of indigenous and local communities living on the front lines of climate change, ocean biodiversity loss, and environmental colonialism in the Pacific and Caribbean basins. This is the ground-level human story of climate change and biodiversity collapse as told by the individuals and communities fighting to protect and restore the very natural systems that sustain their lives, livelihoods, and cultural identities.
Healing the Garden
(In Development) Humanity's relationship with the natural world is broken. To solve the problems facing our world today, we must begin to see ourselves as part of the natural world not apart from it. Healing the Garden presents a hopeful vision of the future Planet Earth restored by stewardship and local community solutions. Our subjects are young leaders working to restore and protect the keystone species and natural systems that sustain their coastal and island communities and are at the core of their cultural identities. Through a global grassroots effort promoting local and indigenous knowledge and wisdom, we can heal ourselves and our world so that our children and their children will have a home they can thrive in and transform in their image.
See the Forest
(In Development) A forest is more than just the trees, it is a vibrant city of life. For the community of botanists, scholars, and conservationists to successfully restore the diminished and fragmented Longleaf Pine forests of the Southeastern United States, they must repair the intricate network of flora, fauna, and rare endemic species like William Bartram's Franklin Tree.
