every continent, women are rising up and leading efforts to protect and
restore the natural environment, serving as role models and empowering others
to respect the earth and take action. Delivering a hopeful, inspirational
message, Arise presents the stories of 14 extraordinary women in 5 countries
who have initiated solution-oriented environmental projects in rural and
urban communities alike. Arise features interviews with Judy
Kimamo with Wangari Maathai's Green Belt Movement, Maggie Fox, Winona LaDuke,
Majora Carter, Vandana Shiva, Starhawk and many other amazing women. The film profiles their innovative efforts to replant trees in
Kenya, conserve biodiversity in India, protect the rainforest in Ecuador,
preserve sacred Native lands, build more sustainable communities, transform
food systems through urban agriculture, organize to combat climate change,
and more. Through these diverse examples, the filmʼs heroines challenge our
current way of thinking about the environment, and inspire us to shift our
values and create a healthier, more sustainable relationship to the earth.
