“Dragon Tears” is a cutting-edge artisanal documentary film on the political ecology of planetary survival, directed, written and produced by Bérangère Parizeau. I am a French-Canadian environmental activist, independent filmmaker, researcher, polyglot, multi-media artist, vegan, meditator and yogini. My Master of Arts thesis in Asia Pacific Policy Studies, “Dragon Tears: a critical analysis of the political ecology of planetary survival ,” (2017) was produced as research for this film. This feature documentary film sheds light on the global health emergency of climate change, communicates innovative solution to the global crisis towards an ecological transition, and Earth stewardship. The objective of this project is to fluidly energize international public debates on ecological justice and a post-growth paradigm.
