Earth Day Film Premiere: "The Revolution Generation"


originally published: 04/18/2022

Earth Day Film Premiere: "The Revolution Generation"

(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- This Earth Day, Friday, April 22, Big Picture Ranch (BPR), is releasing The Revolution Generation, their 15th film about solutions to the growing global climate crisis. The studio and filmmakers were also behind Kiss The Ground, which launched at the Tribeca Film Festival and garnered over 75 major film festival awards before landing on Netflix. The new film is both an impassioned call to action around the climate crisis and a toolkit for young people to use their civic power to reverse the downward spiral of climate disasters.

The 79-minute, multi-award-winning documentary is narrated and hosted by actor Michelle Rodriguez, a star of the multibillion dollar Fast and Furious franchise. As the film shows, this is not Rodriguez' first blush with environmental activism having participated on Sea Shepherd missions, anti-oil protests and other eco oriented causes. 

This fast-moving, vibrant, and essential documentary, The Revolution Generation, a is being released in New York City and Los Angeles, plus streaming online on Earth Day (Friday, April 22) in theaters, on high school and college campuses (where it plays free to students) and on iTunes. Over 500 high schools and colleges have already signed up to host in-person screenings of the film. Sign up to host a screening. 

This release is part of the film studio's ongoing mission to eradicate and reverse climate change by 2030. The Revolution Generation provides a powerful recent history of the Millennial generation (those born between 1980-2000), profiling inspiring young leaders taking on the enormous and intersectional issues of discrimination and climate instability. Sustainable Films and Social Construct served as production partners on the film and Greenwich Entertainment is managing the US release.

In theater events include live Q&A's Friday April 22 and Saturday April 23 at Village East by Angelika in New York City and Laemmle Monica in Los Angeles. The film will also be streamed on Apple TV.
