A message from Zach Weiss on World Water day on March 22nd: - "Water - every day I am more grateful for this vital element, and yet I feel I am just starting to scratch the surface of its significance. Today is world water day and the theme is water and climate, and how the two are inextricably linked. I think that's another connection where science is just starting to understand the significance of the relationship between the water cycle and global heat dynamics. That's why for the past two years I've been working on a film to bring this connection to life - and show how humans can act to restore a healthy water cycle for all life on earth."


The water cycle is one of the most important drivers of climate. If we challenge our relationship with water, it will allow us to see today's environmental crises in a new light. The need for better water stewardship is the inspiration for Elemental Change.








Watch the Trailer Here:






Film Description


Elemental Change illustrates the water cycle and its importance to life on Earth, through stories of people successfully reversing environmental degradation.

Today, traditional knowledge holders, agroecologists, and eco-entrepreneurs see solutions where many have given up hope -- the elemental change possible when humans act in step with nature's cycles.

This independently-funded documentary aims to create a movement that empowers communities across the globe to create solutions for their local environmental challenges.

Do you have the trailer uploaded on any other platform. Vimeo has never worked for me. Always lags or just stopped loading.

I liked the first minute of the trailer!

LOOKS powerfully important, i just tried to submit my name/email on the website form (to get details on when/where to watch the film), but "Something went wrong while submitting the form." Don't see a 'contact' option on the website, so thought i'd try to let you know here...
thanks!

"Elemental Change"...what a fitting title for the time in which we live!  Thank you so much for creating this film...seeing something such as this reminds me that there is hope for humanity after all.  Best wishes and congratulations on undertaking such a beautiful and worthwhile creation.

Such an awesome trailer, obviously an important topic.

I want to laud how well constructed the trailer itself is; the astounding quality of the imagery, the pacing and tempo, and the intensity, is of truly cinematic quality.

(I also personally enjoyed the build-up to Sepp. Don't want to spoil any more than that)

Well done! As any good trailer should, this has me dancing with anticipation for when the film premieres.

Thanks for the heads-up for this great initiative, Cassie. Do you know if there is a plan for the film to be subtitled or dubbed in other languages? I practice and teach permaculture design in the south of Spain and would most certainly host a screening (or several) here if it can be subtitled. I would also offer to translate, if that is needed.  There is no contact link on the website, so do you have any idea how to get in touch with the people who are making this film?

Thanks,
Linda Morrison

Hi Laura,

Thanks for letting us know. I just tested all the forms and they are working properly so maybe something was happening at the time that got fixed? Care to try again and let me know if it is still not working?

Hi Cassie, I tried again, same problem.  I use firefox as my browser.  Just to troubleshoot, I tried on microsoft edge, and it worked there.  but for whatever it's worth, I do NOT use and WILL NOT use microsoft when there are other options.  I hate EVERYTHING microsoft - they are privacy invasive and worse.  I used it this time just to troubleshoot, I have some of their tentacles on my computer because I MUST for my J-O-B, but I HATE HATE HATE it.  Hope you can get stuff working on other browsers.  I look forward to seeing the film.  Thanks!
