Eleven funny shorts on the environment.

"An example of how powerful visual communication can be." **** Video Rating Guide for Libraries

GREEN ANIMATION is a compilation of short, fresh animated films about environmental issues. Under the sponsorship of the World Wide Fund for Nature in the UK, animators and musicians- some student, some professional - combine talents to prompt laughter, anger, indignation and action for an ecologically sound future. This collection of 11 short films is accompanied by a teacher's guide, and has reference markers to help discussion leaders have easy access to any particular film.

Reviews
"An example of how powerful visual communication can be...This production is unique and has incredible potential for classroom applications... (In libraries) it might soon become a resource that is always checked out. Not only is it entertaining, it is thought-provoking, and the images are radical enough that even the MTV generation will likely relate to them."
