Le Syndrome Du Titanic

France - 2007
Nicolas Hulot, Jean-Albert Lièvre

"The Titanic Syndrome," directing debut of French environmental program-maker-turned-eco-campaigner Nicolas Hulot, is a cinematic attempt to wake viewers up to the calamitous future we're arguably heading for if we don't change our ways.

The titular syndrome is simple: Our planet is the doomed oceanliner, and we -- in the West, at least -- are all busy leading our more-or-less luxurious lives as we sail toward cataclysm. It's obviously not the first film in recent times to put forward the case for safeguarding Earth, but it promises to look at the issue from a bold perspective. " Syndrome" is no filmed lecture or argument put forth by global experts. Narration is sparse, and it sets out to make its point through the power of images that highlight what Hulot calls "the society of waste."

Learning activities include: conversation, writing short paragraphs, role plays and discussion.

Topics covered include: social issues such as the Global Village and environmental issues; lifestyles, technology and innovation; expressing personal opinions and values.
