About the Film: “Invisible poisons spread through the atmosphere, borne by the winds from the guilty to the innocent. But all were innocent, all were guilty.” These words by Edward Abbey got me thinking about the obstacles to civilization. If my last film was about the foundation of cities, this one is about the end of them, and the way in which environmental degradation makes people become situationally motivated to act violent.

Current Status: Pre-production.
