Underwater Film Maker Takes His Eco-Message Onto Dry Land in Revolution

Toronto Film Maker Opens Revolution at Toronto International Film Festival






(From a recent, popular Facebook posting by Stephen Weir)


I attended last night's world premiere of Rob Stewart's newest eco-documentary, Revolution. The full-length movie was screened  here in Toronto to an almost full house at TIFF.

Stewart, an underwater filmmaker (Shark Water) spends most of this movie above-water looking at how close the planet is to a total eco-meltdown. The movie is very critical of Canada's Tar Sands project. Great underwater scenes with whale sharks and manta rays.

Pictured is Stewart before and after the screening, and a plastic shark prop (from the movie) outside the Wellington Street bar where the after-party was held.
