======================================================

Against a compelling backdrop of Environmental art,
Natural World Museum's Film series shows compelling
documentaries and movies with an environmental message.

NWM seeks to promote film as an organizing media
for people to engage in a social movement demanding
global sustainability.

------------------------------------------------------
THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY I

Directed by the South African Jamie Uys, this
slaphappy collection of goofy pratfalls and
culture-clash gags became an enormous international
smash. A Coke bottle dropped from an airplane disrupts
the quiet life of a family of African Bushmen
living in the deep isolation of the Kalahari desert.
N!Xau, the head of the family, takes the evil thing
and embarks on a journey to the end of the world to
return it to the gods. At the same time a white teacher
is fed up with city life and takes a job in Botswana.
She meets a shy and bumbling scientist. Their
adventures and misadventures are intertwined with
N!Xau's journey.

From the perspective of sustainability, this film
provides comic relief and a lighthearted view on
the disruptions that globalization, symbolized
by the ubiquitous Coke bottle, can have on
traditional societies.
