Force Of Nature

David Suzuki, iconic Canadian scientist, educator, broadcaster, and activist shares his powerful autobiography of ideas--forged by the major social, scientific, cultural and political events of the past 70 years.

The film weaves together scenes from the places and events that shaped Suzuki's life with a filming of his Last Lecture, which he describes as 'a distillation of my life and thoughts, my legacy, what I want to say before I die.'

He articulates a core, urgent message: we have exhausted the limits of the biosphere and it is imperative that we re-think our relationship with the natural world. Suzuki looks unflinchingly at the strains on our interconnected web of life--and out of our dire present circumstances he offers up a positive blueprint for sustainability and survival.
