Hollywood Still Destroying the World

Yahoo: Schrader gives Venice glimpse of Apocalypse soon
"I don't see humanity outliving the century," Schrader told reporters after the drama, which stars Ethan Hawke, as an unexpectedly middle-aged troubled pastor, and Amanda Seyfried, was unveiled.

The dark tale is being tipped as an outside shot for the Golden Lion, the top prize at the world's oldest cinema festival.

Outlining the thinking that lay behind his script, Schrader added: "I have to be honest. I have lived in the magic cone of history, the baby boomer years."

"A life of affluence, a life of leisure, a life of little pestilence, little war. And for that my generation has pretty well screwed the planet for our kids."

Such themes are being increasingly reflected by filmmakers: planetary destruction driven by climate warming was a prominent theme in Venice's opening film "Downsizing".
Don't worry, it's nothing original:
This proves to be a catalyst for a spiritual rebirth of sorts, Toller rediscovering his faith in righteous anger over his discovery that the church is being bankrolled by a polluting industrialist.
