8 BILLION ANGELS film still

This new documentary argues that the size of the globe’s human population (now approaching eight billion) threatens the sustainability of our planet, endangering rivers, oceans, land, and air. It also argues that technology and reduced consumption alone can’t save us. “A no-nonsense look at how our greed is the thing that will kill us and the planet...Persuasive and important, startling and familiar.” –What She Said. Cleveland premiere. 78 min.
