Fall and Winter is an epic and spectacularly photographed journey across the U.S. in search of what is causing our unfolding global crisis. Pollution, droughts and diminishing resources now threaten the very engine driving these catastrophes; civilization itself. Massive dislocations are manifesting in our lifetime, and our world will never be the same.

Fall and Winter, an outstanding essay on the greatest threat to planet Earth 

The premonitions of wise men of the Hopi people in the United States are the starting point of this revealing documentary that investigates the origins of the current environmental crisis and its growing threat to life on planet Earth.The warning signs of those who in the past lived with much more harmony with nature are now a certainty. 

Much has been written about climate change and the unsustainability of our civilization and it is precisely this literary source that director Matt Anderson addresses through interviews with leading theorists.In Fall and Winter, a magnificent cinematography accompanies the testimonies of those who have dedicated their entire lives to elucidating the abrupt change in the metabolism of our ecosystem. 

The assimilation of agriculture, the denial of indigenous ways of life and the explosion of developmentalism are some of the notions that give us a real perspective of our present in this inescapable essay on our suffocating contemporaneity.
