Product Notes

The program is intended to commemorate Earth Day with a dramatic piece that is introduced by Bill Moyers. When pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson published Silent Spring in 1962 the backlash from her critics thrust her into the center of a political maelstrom. Despite her love of privacy Carson's convictions and her foresight regarding the risks posed by chemical pesticides forced her into a very public and controversial role. Using many of Miss Carson's own words Kaiulani Lee embodies this extraordinary woman in a documentary style film which depicts Carson in the final year of her life. Struggling with cancer Carson recounts with both humor and anger the attacks by the chemical industry the government and the press as she focuses her limited energy to get her message to Congress and the American people. The film is an intimate and poignant reflection of Carson's life as she emerges as America's most successful advocate for the natural world. A Sense of Wonder was shot in HD by Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler at Carson's cottage on the coast of Maine.
