Lehman College Environmental Sustainability Films at Leonard Lief Library

Eco-cinema is the emerging sub-genre of documentary film exploring the (often negative) impacts human activity has on the environment. Like any documentary, the purpose is to educate audience members on the issues and spur them into positive behavioral change. The best eco-cinema (or any documentary) films present accurate interpretations of environmental phenomena supported by scientifically proven facts.

Films about environmental sustainability cover a lot of territory, often incorporating many different topics of environmental sustainability in a single film. These films almost always include social justice and political aspects of environmental sustainability.

A thoughtfully-curated, growing collection of eco-cinema films is housed in the Leonard Lief Library film collection. Below is a listing of the films and their collection numbers. These films can be borrowed from the Library with a valid Lehman College ID card.
