Authors of Deep Green Resistance and Seven Stories Press host YouTube video contest

September 15, 2011 11:59pm

This culture is killing the planet. It will not undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of living. What does this mean for our strategy and our tactics? What are appropriate and effective responses to this destructive culture? What should we do? These are some of the most important questions ever faced by human beings. Lierre Keith, Derrick Jensen, and Aric McBay, authors of Deep Green Resistance, and Seven Stories Press are seeking films that explore these themes with passion and artistry.

So, what does “deep green resistance” mean to you? How do you enact this in your daily life? Do you organize protests in your local community? Publish a radical eco zine? Whether through a narrative film, music video, an animation, or anything in between, now’s your chance to speak up; we’re listening!

To enter: As an individual, upload an original video no longer than 10 minutes to YouTube and tag it with #dgrcontest. Then, send an e-mail to with “DGR Contest” in the subject line and a link to the video’s YouTube URL address.

The video contest will run from June 15th, 2011 through September 15th, 2011. All videos must be tagged and submitted via e-mail with a link to the YouTube URL addresses by 11:59pm EST on September 15th, 2011. Three winners will be chosen by Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith, and Aric McBay, and will each receive signed copies of both Deep Green Resistance and Dreams. Videos from the top contestants will be uploaded to the Seven Stories Press YouTube account and screened in New York City in Fall 2011.
