      Directed by Oliver Hodge and co-production of Open Eye Media, ITVS International and Sundance Channel. This inspiring film profiles maverick architect Michael Reynolds, who has spent thirty years developing radically original models of self-sustaining housing near Taos, New Mexico. Working with a crew of like-minded idealists and professionals, Reynolds has channeled his unstoppable imagination into strange yet functional dwellings that are made from garbage like old tires and beer cans. With the colorful, passionate architect at its center, Garbage Warrior traces the ups and downs of an iconoclastic career, from early experiments to heartbreaking setbacks to disaster relief projects at the other end of the world.moreless

      As part of THE GREEN, Sundance Channel presents a series of documentary films focusing on timely and pressing environmental issues of the day. Ian Cheney tells the unlikely story of Boston's first residential "green" building and how it united a tight-knit community. The Macallen Building seemed an odd addition to South Boston - "Southie" - a traditionally working-class neighborhood. Yet The Macallen not only won high marks for its sustainable design ideas and offered its diverse residents luxury features, its creation also spurred workers and environmentalists to think about the city of the future.moreless

      As part of THE GREEN, Sundance Channel presents a series of documentary films focusing on timely and pressing environmental issues of the day. From 2003 to 2005, British artist/filmmaker David Buckland organized three sailing expeditions to the High Arctic as part of a series of collaborations between artists, educators, and scientists, designed to create public awareness of global climate change. David Hinton's film captures those expeditions, immersing us in the Arctic's otherworldly sights, sounds, and silences as Buckland and his companions - including composer Max Eastley, photographer Alex Hartley, writer Ian McEwan, and sculptor Rachel Whiteread - explore the dramatic landscape.moreless
