The 2010 Solar-Powered Film Series begins with a very special screening of the solar-made feature, Severed Ways - a film about the Viking discovery of North America. Set in 1007, the film is beautifully shot and quite remarkable. However, its depiction of the story and time period includes very strong language in subtitles, some nudity, and graphic violence unlike anything we’ve ever shown at Solar One.
It is not recommended for children or for sensitive viewers. This is the only film in the Series that is not an all-ages film; while normally we are careful to only show family entertainment, we felt that the artistic achievement of this film and the extraordinary story of how it was made justified including it.
With this said, Out of Our Minds and Severed Ways artfully address environmental issues in unconventionally interesting and powerful ways.
Green Edge Films highlights creative and insightful films - short and feature length - that bring to light various topics that are directly related to the Green Edge mission statement, “to educate and inspire action toward a sustainable future."
