the word ‘environment’ lets us think of: green, animals and plants of nature, contamination and destruction, urban and rural development…apart from the natural physical space, what is the position of ‘human’ living in groups, in the environment?
the environmental issues highlighted in films this year, from land use planning to energy use, seem to be the concern of respective officials and professionals only. when it comes to real life practice, what is the difference in the understanding of the ‘environment’ between those who have the power to plan and make decisions, and those who are directly affected by related policies? who then gain/lose something under the arrangements related to the environment? when we witness someone else’s situation, do we really have nothing to do with this? how can we respond to the situation that others are suffering already?
