Film Synopsis

Called “one of the world’s most influential thinkers” by The Washington Post, environmentalist Lester Brown is the recipient of a MacArthur Genius Award, the United Nations Environmental Prize and Japan’s Blue Planet Prize. Shot on location in Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, New Delhi, Rome, Istanbul, Ankara and Washington, D.C., the film features Lester Brown’s recent visit with world leaders to discuss ways to respond to the challenges of climate change. It begins with a dramatic portrayal of a world where there is a mounting tide of public concern about melting glaciers and sea level rise and a growing sense that we need to change course in how we react to emerging economic and social pressures.


The film also spotlights a world where ocean resources are becoming scarce, croplands are eroding and harvests are shrinking. But what makes Plan B significant and timely is that it provides audiences with hopeful solutions – a road map that will help eradicate poverty, stabilize populations and protect and restore our planet’s fisheries, forests, soils and biological diversity. Produced by Emmy-Award winning filmmakers Marilyn Weiner and Hal Weiner. This film is part one of a two-part series.
