This Earth Day, Friday, April 22, Big Picture Ranch (BPR), is releasing The Revolution Generation, their 15th film about solutions to the growing global climate crisis. The studio and filmmakers were also behind Kiss The Ground, which launched at the Tribeca Film Festival and garnered over 75 major film festival awards before landing on Netflix. The new film is both an impassioned call to action around the climate crisis and a toolkit for young people to use their civic power to reverse the downward spiral of climate disasters. The 79-minute, multi-award-winning documentary is narrated and hosted by actor Michelle Rodriguez, a star of the multibillion dollar Fast and Furious franchise. As the film shows, this is not Rodriguez’ first blush with environmental activism having participated on Sea Shepherd missions, anti-oil protests and other eco oriented causes.
