Practical Ecology 2: on Matter and Energy is a film about a man born during the World War II. The film focuses on his thoughts and mission to live an ecologically sustainable life, and how that affects his relationship to objects, waste, nature and the inevitable fact that one man alone cannot change the course of the future. The neoliberal society sees citizenship as freedom of individuals, freedom to work, invest, consume, recycle, to lead a hedonistic lifestyle. What if this doesn’t seem like a desirable choice? How would it be possible to create an alternative relationship to man-made objects? Practical Ecology 2: on Matter and Energy examines how embodied knowledge could open a critical position to the consumer culture for current and future generations.
