EARTH DAY CELEBRATION!
To usher in Earth Day (April 22nd) Big Movies presents two celebrated, animated films about our fragile environment: Dr. Seuss’s THE LORAX and the Academy Award-winning film by Frederic Back, THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES.
“Gluppity Glup, Shloppity Shlop!” THE LORAX chronicles the plight of the Truffula Trees, and the Bar-ba-loots, Swomee Swans and other fantastical beings that lived among them. A greedy industrialist, the Once-ler, recounts how he destroyed the forest for his Thneed-making business, and the strange little creature, The Lorax , “I speak for the trees,” who tried to stop him. (USA; 1972; not rated; color animation; 25 minutes)
Based on the beautiful short story by Jean Giono, The Man Who Planted Trees tells the story of a lone shepherd's effort to re-forest a decimated valley in the foothills of the Alps over the course of four decades. Narrated by Christopher Plummer (Canada; 1987; not rated; color animation; English narration; 30 minutes)
