SELLING AIR

SELLING AIR

 

Yorgos Avgeropoulos, 48 min. (Prod: Small Planet, GR)


Carbon dioxide has a price. Will the market save the world ?

Had one ever imagined that clean air could become an object of commercial exchange? And yet, the ability of plants to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere have translated into money and produced great profit for years. The carbon market keeps flourishing. The film investigates how an ecologically friendly set of laws was used to enforce nature protection against traditionnal and environment-responsible lifestyles of autochtons, while getting green exchange money in order to carry on polluting.
