Mine Your Own Business: A Documentary About the Dark Side of Environmentalism

Recorded on May 30, 2007

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Mine Your Own Business - a one-hour feature documentary - is an entertaining and informative exposé on how the environmental movement is ignoring the world's poor and their dire need for development.  The film features interviews with some of the world's poorest people and reflects on their individual goals for a better life.  It is the first documentary to ask hard questions of the environmental movement and the right of all people to live prosperous and productive lives.  Even if you think you understand the importance of economic development, this film will provide insight into the desperate state of the world's poor - as no book or study can - and why we cannot deny them the dignity of development and economic achievement.
