'The Story of Stuff'
The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fact-filled short film about the negative effects of our production and consumption patterns. The film is a cheerful but somewhat brutal look into how wasteful humans can be and exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues.
The thick-lined drawings of the Earth, a factory and a house are meant to convey the cycle of human consumption, as are the pictures of dark puffs of factory smoke and outlines of skulls and crossbones that represent polluting chemicals floating in the air. The Story of Stuff calls for the creation of a more sustainable and just world. It will definitely teach you something, while making you laugh and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
