Sedona Film Festival presents 'Planet of the Humans' on May 19-20

Michael Moore and Jeff Gibbs take a harsh look at the environmental movement In new film

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Planet of the Humans” on Wednesday and Thursday, May 19 and 20 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. Showtimes will be 4 and 7 p.m. each day.

“Planet of the Humans” takes a harsh look at how the environmental movement has lost the battle through well-meaning but disastrous choices, including the belief that solar panels and windmills would save us, and by giving in to the corporate interests of Wall Street.

The film is the debut movie from Jeff Gibbs, whom award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore calls “a brave and brilliant filmmaker whose new voice must be heard.” Gibbs is a lifelong environmentalist and longtime collaborator of Moore’s with whom he co-produced “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11”. “Planet of the Humans” first screened as a work in progress at the most recent Traverse City Film Festival where it was a huge audience favorite.
