A New Short Film from Shifting Baselines Co-Founder Jason Ensler

Jason Ensler, Hollywood director and co-founder of the Shifting Baselines Ocean Media Project, released a short film he made on living locally in a digital age. The film spotlights NPR correspondent and now goat-herder Doug Fine and is a segue to Fine's latest book Farewell My Subaru--a disclosure of Fine's mistakes during his first year of going green. Watch the beautiful little piece here (or at BoingBoing).
