War and the Environment

This project will attempt to serve as a cursory overview of many of
the issues arising from interactions between war and the environment
(defined as both our natural and built surroundings). The choice to
present these issues in the form of a short art film was made in order to
reach out to a non-academic audience and to give viewers a sense of what
living in a war-torn environment is actually like. This work is meant to
raise ethical issues, stimulate the senses and to provide information in
an accessible format.
