Author of 48 books and recipient of 24 honorary degrees from academic institutions worldwide, Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki is a man on a mission.
Widely known on radio and television, scientist Suzuki,75, is considered one of the top 10 greatest Canadians of all time, and reveals in this documentary a side rarely seen. Through personal stories and reflections, Suzuki movingly recalls his family’s forced relocation to an internment camp for Japanese-Canadians after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and sheds light on the forces that shape his strong ethics and priorities.
Filmed for the occasion of his legacy lecture at the University of British Columbia, he urges the audience to make science and nature a priority, and to work to change humanity’s increasingly destructive environmental impact. Director Sturla Gunnarsson’s portrait of a life lived with purpose is an inspiration.
