SLJ wrote: "The film has a serious agenda in mind: to determine the cause of the high mortality rate among these marine mammals off the coast of California. The 41-minute film makes a strong connection to varied areas of curricula: marine biology, environmental studies, public policy, and investigative journalism."
Science Books and Films earlier also "recommended" Threatened as “a well-organized, easy-to-understand presentation of a case study which is well understood and captures the complexity of environmental management and restoration.”

The film journeys into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone several decades after the world’s worst nuclear disaster. The tightly regulated 1000 square mile Dead Zone remains one of the most radioactively contaminated places on Earth. Surprisingly, a defiant, spirited group of elderly women scratches out an existence in this lethal landscape. The resilient babushkas are the last survivors of a small community who refused to leave their ancestral homes after the Chernobyl disaster.
Chernobyl was also recently in the news with the completion of a concrete sarcophagus that now covers the reactor. The film captures images of the sarcophagus under construction, which will need to last longer than the pyramids in Egypt to prevent further radiation releases.
"Starred Review. This award-winning documentary captures a land that time forgot and the world has avoided.”

The film GARWIN profiles Richard Garwin's life and work. He received his Ph.D. under Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi, who later invited him to work at Los Alamos on the nation’s nuclear weapons program. Fermi called Garwin "the only true genius he ever met". In recent years he was part of an elite group of scientists asked to help plug the BP oil spill and find solutions to contain the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. His lifes’ work was also honored with the National Medal of Science.

The Ross Sea is a deep bay in the Antarctic Ocean, which produces about three-quarters of the nutrients that sustain life in the rest of the world’s oceans, upwelled by currents that carry them around the world.
BBC - World’s largest marine protected area declared in Antarctica
THE LAST OCEAN film profiles the Ross Sea and the long international battle to protect it. Featuring top scientists, including Dr. Sylvia Earle and Dr. Daniel Pauly, as well as international political leaders, the film examines both the science and politics behind the efforts to preserve Earth’s last truly wild ocean.
