Congratulations to SOW student filmmakers Tobias Deml, Marc Estrada and Spencer Maley from UC Berkeley, as well as Connor Murdock from Boston University, whose short films are currently airing on pivot in celebration of Earth Month. The short films, which focus on urban gardening in Oakland and the Boston Harbor Clean-up Project, are part of pivot’s One Earth series. Dirty Seagull by Connor Murdock tells the history of the environmental history of the Boston Harbor told through the eyes of its oldest inhabitants - the Seagulls.
Concrete Gardens by Tobias Deml, Marc Estrada and Spencer Maley explore the larger narrative and impact of the urban gardening movement.
And while April 22nd officially marks Earth Day, you have until April 30th to take part in pivot’s One Earth Challenge. Just share your photos highlighting environmental awareness with the hashtag #EarthDayEveryDay for the chance to win a brand new bike worth $1,500 and a Terracycle Gift Pack.
