Description
It Can Be Done: This film reflects the grass-roots response to the environmental crisis, the basic theme of the Man Builds, Man Destroys series. It focuses on three environmental problems – excessive noise in Manhattan, mercury poisoning at Minamata, Japan, and spraying DDT in a campaign against gypsy moths in Connecticut – and community-action plans that modified or alleviated these problems. Above all, it stresses the important role of the individual in meeting this challenge.
